Decked neck with emeralds and pearls
A crinoline over ritual clothes
A seductress too seditious to be bridled
Life lead raging against the earls.
Earls who tried to seize the kingdom
From the virtuous scion to the throne
Sensing the danger, sullied her reputation
Who showed guts to rule with wisdom.
Wisdom and courage were her arms
No vedettes or bars could cage her ever
When repudiated to bow to their dictates
They robbed her son sans any qualms.
Qualms loomed large, the state grew wretched
She did whatever she could to outsmart
Until her final breath, fought like a lioness
In golden words, her name is decked.
