Tragicomedy in Three Acts

Tragicomedy in Three Acts

the queen of feeling
& the king of thinking
& the prince of doing
witnessed the princess die—

sensible knaves wept
& knave-wives pulled their hair out
while the country
petted its mongrel dogs

the queen of sorrow
& the king of mourning
& the prince of grief
took theirs for a walk
