Queen of Pens
The British bulldog who once helped Britannia rule the waves
Holds high with honor the Queen of Pens in all her pearly blaze
Splendid, as she is, all trimmed in gold and stolen from India.
In regal glory (and with a consort or two) the Queen rules, then,
o’er her court of princess pens: blacks, browns, reds and greens.
And when she says, “Girls, let’s uncap ourselves
and write a story!” The princess pens all clap with glee
and begin the hunt for metaphors and allegories.
