They were Kings, and Queens, and Warriors
In their secret kingdom in the ‘hood.
Fierce dragons there were sometimes caught
As brave battles raged on an empty lot.
Maidens by the dozen frolicked in the sun.
Warriors charged in wars lost, and hearts won.
Kings and Queens in their palaces little knew
Of the dangers there ‘neath their high-walled view.
The clash of blade and the victory yell-
Long faded and forgotten as twilight fell.
