Strong Women Fall

Queens fall from grace every day

Those tenacious, fearsome souls do indeed crumble at the hands of clever men
Cleopatra’s lost her throne, Queen Elizabeth’s gone rogue
Who is gonna bring their glory back
Before he steals it forever
All it takes is a common man
He sneaks into their hearts and their beds and their minds
Then the mask falls and the trickster reveals himself
It’s an old an old story, but nobody speaks of it
You’ve seen the pictures of a man grasping at a woman and her body angling into his like it fits perfectly
You don’t see what happens next
The confusion, the anger, the heartbreak
The intelligent, strong, incredible woman falling
And boy do they fall.
