Society in Monarchy

December 11, 2019


Kings would fight 'till the end of the battle, and that'd be honorable
but if a soldier with no much medals no a commander were to be impaled at war,
he'd simply be another numerical tragedy; he ain't no king
'cause if he was, his funeral would hear the trumpets sing

Queens would rule 'till the end of the era, and that'd be remarkable
but if a mother with a house of three daughters and two sons were to ruling at home,
she'd simply be another irrelevant commoner; she ain't no queen
'cause is she was, her words would make treaties and carry throughout the land

Princesses would smile 'till the end of their singularity, and that'd be significant
but if a girl with pale blue, maid dresses and black slip-on shoes were to grin,
she'd simply be another immemorable face; she ain't no princess
cause if she was, her hand would be promised to other rules and worth a fortune

Princes would train 'till the end of magnificence, and that'd be admirable
but if a boy with brown clothes and a job working in the stables were to start dueling,
he'd simply be another necessary death; he ain't no prince
'cause if he was, his chest would be decorated with medals

When royal families lose each other, the whole country mourns together
but if the peasants lost one another, not many spare a glance

    I remember reading and liking this back in December. The title was so eye catching that I couldn’t help but read it. After all these months, it’s still just as poignant as before. I love this concept and the way you’ve portrayed it is just so beautifully articulated. (It seems I’ve been liking your pieces for far longer than I have remembered! Just goes to show how much of a legend you truly are.)

    okay so i've been thinking of the concept of monarch for a long time (like a 'what if' situation), so the title of the piece definitely intrigued me. the execution of this piece is breathtaking, the imagery is fantastic. my favourite lines are ''cause is she was, her words would make treaties and carry throughout the land' and 'cause if he was, his funeral would hear the trumpets sing'. love the poetic eloquence of this piece, well done!
