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.
