Poem 19. The Kingdom

The Kingdom

Who is the king
when the question was raised
' The brain'
came the instant reply .

Who is the queen
when again asked
'The heart'
then itself reply came.

Why you tell me the king is brain
B'cos it is the decision maker.
 how come heart the queens role
 only she can influence him.

The king and queen effectively rule
 kingdom "our body" with utmost care.
all other organs have strict duties
which they perform as warriors.

 King or Queen suffers wrong
 whole kingdom upside down.
Long live the King and Queen
Let them govern "The body" strong.

I loved this line. "King or Queen suffers wrong, whole kingdom upside down". That is so true.
