the matriarch

she was kind and loving
unlike most people in the family.
the house that everyone loved to go to
with a fridge that always had at least
two 12 packs of coke;
her guilty pleasure
which she later traded for 
two 12 packs of citrus green tea.
though it probably wasn’t much better,
at least it was something.
she was a comfort
but she was human
and she only had boys
that she would protect with her life
no matter what they did
she valued her own perception over the truth
and such a foolish play
is exactly what made the queen lose.
