Tell me how you’d like to be known
As a royal among peasants
Sitting high and mighty on your throne

Or would you like to be proud
Just like the rose whose thorns
Declare it will not be unbowed

Perhaps you’d like to be a reality star.
Everyone basking in your presence
But will they care who you really are

I’ll tell you a secret, promise not to tell
I’d like to be the hermit crab
And escape by hiding in my shell

The following prompts were used for these poems:
