(pronounced as the male monarch’s name)

Q is for Quing

 

Lately, I’ve been wondering

If women can’t be kings

Not that queen isn’t a good word

It’s fine

 

But for many, it rudely matters that

The queen is not the king

 

We’ve had women working as kings

King Elizabeth the First

King Victoria

And if Pope Joan’s and Nefertiti’s

Reigns are believed,

They ruled as kings in their

Respective cultures

 

If queens don’t want to be kings

I understand

After all, kings actual, though

Royal, too often do not take well

To scrutiny

 

But overall I’d like to say

Hail, King Elizabeth

Hail, King Zenobia
