Tomorrow’s Queen

She never grew up to be a daytripper
Never came home to fit the slipper
But fled with a man to this bedsitter
Part Little Jack Horner, part Jack the Ripper
And when he leaves Ricki Lake soon takes over
Then there’s a dogfight over Dover
And a dad never knew that he had a daughter
He was in a Spitfire underwater
She’d like to get a place out in the country
But A Clockwork Orange has made her jumpy
And Lord of the Flies starring Miss Piggy
Is coming to a theatre in your city
Once thought that she read a red letter
Written in red on a double decker
It said ‘come along with us when you’re better’
But she never grew up to be a go-getter

Having seen all there was to see
She turned from the window to the screen
To a world of thrones and robes and prophecies
Of tomorrow’s queen
In the corner of her eye
Is a drop of the sea that might have been
But this world will so wear out before she’ll be
Tomorrow’s queen


from The Scottish Play, released November 15, 2020
