The Black Queen


The Black Queen walked down the street and we all bowed down
The Black Queen looked at me and there was no sound
The Black Queen fell down and dropped her own crown
The Black Queen went up and went down as she began to pound
Pound for what Lord knows why
All we could do is listen to her cries
The Black Queen is know to have no heart
Cuz some man ripped it apart
The Black Queen is known to kill anyone who walked in her way
The Black Queen suddenly stopped and began to say
My children I love, my friends I adore
The Black Queen forever, and now the Black Queen is no more
The Black Queen found a knife, and took her own life
We gathered around, without a sound and said the Black Queen
is dead
We chanted, YOU HEARD WHAT WE SAID THE BLACK QUEEN IS DEAD
The Black Queen has now realized
That with what she was supplied has now committed suicide
And now she has died
We why’d, and tried, and sighed, and then we cried
We cried for hours, maybe days, maybe years
As we cried the only thing we felt was our tears
The tears 4 years they fell
On our faces they began to swell
All we could say is “Oh Lord Oh Well”

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
