This time we will have true dominion
This year we will take control
This moment is poised for our victory
And all of our virtues extol

The crown and the spectre are waiting
Our place is best there on the throne
And all of our plotting and scheming
Just memories we’d rather dis-own

This time it is our will that’s ruling
This year we control this domain
This moment is bearing our emblem
And all of our foes face disdain

This time we will have true dominion
All enemies vanquished and gone
And all will be bowing before us
As we gaze down on life from our throne

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

  1. Powerful moments of power and the wish for control. Well done Helen and the crown is impressive, as those things are.

  2. A pretty cool post, and the picture of the crown is amazing, of course.

  4. I second Mono’s “Hear, Hear!!”
