Getting Creative with The New Royalty

Jesi Kay

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at

    All 3 poems are stunningly brilliant! What I especially liked was ‘or have you never heard of Marie Antoinette’. Amazing!

    That first poem was pure cool. It formed a wonderful story.
    I loved the second one. Oh, how I tire of overhyped, awful films. I rarely go to the theatre any more–there’s nothing worth going for. And then there are those people who are famous for being famous…ugh, don’t even get me started!
    I don’t have a yellow and green can of death, but I do have a trusty swatter! Thankfully, I haven’t been stung in quite some time.

      ROFL! Thank you so much. The first poem did turn out really well even though it was all so random. I was even surprised because I thought I was just going to get a lot of randomness without sense. And the second and third poems were definitely for laughs. The song Royals just got overplayed too much here in Dallas and I just couldn’t help it…the song played, I thought about the new nobility, then Marie Antoinette popped into my brain, and there ya go…one poem.

    I enjoyed all of them, but I think I enjoyed the light-hearted feel of the second poem the best. That may be just the mood that I’m in.

      And what a great mood to be in! I’m really glad that it did turn out so light and fun. That’s what I wanted it to be.
