King me
and let me pretend that the
little gesture
gives me the power
a man can’t even
afford to have

Knight me
and let me pretend that the
little gesture
gives me the honor
a man’s can’t even
afford to lose

Man up and face
the reality of a world that
sees the meekness
juxtaposed with
the ethereal strength of a woman
feared in her element
feared in her radiance
struggling in a world that sees
her eloquence and elegance
as social disobedience

Queen her
for she was
born to rule words
and worlds
and men
she was born to speak
knowledge
and strength into
the kings and knights
without power
without honor

Queen me
and let me pretend that the
grand gesture gives you
the power
and honor
to never forget the
worth of
a queen again.

Disobey
