My Castle

I am the queen of this castle
and this is my royal domain...
you may enter with royal permission
but dignity you must maintain.

I make the rules in my castle
all who enter are obliged to obey...
and if you comply with my wishes
I'm inclined to invite you to stay.

If you are polite and respectful,
hospitality I offer to you...
and your visit will be one quite pleasant
as long as you don't go askew!

My servants are at your disposal
to serve you and, thus, entertain...
but remember to mind all your manners
to insure that your treatment's humane!

Tea time is ten, two, and seven...
it behooves you to show up on time...
dressed to observe crown traditions.
To be tardy is considered a crime!

And of course, it will go without saying
you must giggle at all of my jokes...
I assure you, without much pretension
that this is no kingdomly hoax!

Yes, I am the queen of this castle.
When you enter my royal domain
you must respect my sweet presence
if you have a desire to remain!

      LOL that's a good one, love it! =) There is another funny thing that comes up to my mind, I had a parallel vision of my mother's pet toy-terrier DJ, who basically rules the house. I could see "the guy" clearly barking his orders to unruly humans LOL =)

      Oh No-Clue that is great, you have such wit and I thought of you as a young woman far to young to have a 30 year old. I love the humour in your writing, don't ever lose it girl. x

      star, there is a funny little story behind this...Back when my youngest son was about 15, and going through a bad, and I do mean bad, defiant, hateful stage, I left a crazy message on my answering machine for all who called that they had reached the queen of the castle...I was out chasing dragons, the surfs were out to lunch and the mouse couldn't reach the phone...My son and his friends made great fun and harassed my son about that message and I left it on anyways...the boys still harass me about being the "Queen of the Castle" and that son is 30 now! Its a standing joke...I guess ya had to be there but...that was a little history lesson you didn't ask for!

      Hugs and Thanks!
