Dominion

 

The Prince2.jpg

 

Tales of Princes

 

He makes his throne of pillows

And sets himself atop

Master of the bed (and all beds)

Lording it over the room with

The best views in the house

One window overlooks

His dominions

The other affords sight-line

To the domain of his

Neighborhood rival

(That insolent cur)

From this vantage point

He may loudly voice his displeasure

Or sleep away the afternoon

Entirely at his discretion

You’d think him Emperor of China

Not second dog on the totem pole.

 

 

 

 

Words and image are my own.
