Queen of Hearts

Off with her head!
Off with her head!
All the school children yell
Their eyes are bright
She’s in a fright
By fevered fists She fell
What should we do?
What should we do?
Do they bother to tell?
Smother Her scream
Look to their queen
The white queen says oh well
I guess they leave
I guess She stays
On Her knees like She prays
Broken and beat
Is this defeat?
Well there’ve been better days
Will people know?
She’ll duck her head
But Queens of Hearts bleed red
