Red Queen

Red Queen

She surrounds herself 

With sycophantic fakes

And makes herself up

As a red queen 

Spilling spiteful words

From the made up mind

Of a little girl

She’s stuck in time

Unable or unwilling to grow up 

Lacking any empathy 

She lays out her imaginary hurts

For all to bare witness 

“Look at me!” she cries

While pointing at you

Truth is she needs the attention

Otherwise she might disappear

Who would she be then?

Just another pawn

In a game of pretend
