cowards and crowns

The Suicide King besought a Queen

Blood diamond redemption

In her eyes

More criminal than aristocratic

A royal tragically unqualified

Let us behold, Joan of Arc

In her ardency, bewildered

By the Mad Monarch

On his stolen throne

Mercurial, tempermental

Dull sword to temple

There’s never a frown

With cowards and crowns
