Catechist's Journey

If I Were King/Queen for a Day: Students’ Ideas

crown

So, this past Tuesday, I asked my sixth graders to dream of what it is that they would do if they could be king or queen for a day . The purpose of this was to introduce to them the concept of the Kingdom of Israel leading up to Jesus’ proclamation of the Kingdom of God. I was blown away by their responses! They were not only imaginative but also very caring and Gospel-centered! In fact, most of their more serious suggestions are quite compatible with Catholic Social Teaching ! Here’s a sampling from the sublime to the “ridiculous”:

  • provide homes for all the homeless
  • make peace with all countries
  • create a handicap-accessible camp
  • make sure all people have warm clothes for winter
  • make sure everyone has a family
  • take in all dogs in pounds and shelters
  • make sure all kids have presents on Christmas
  • set all zoo animals free
  • everyone will donate clothes for the homeless
  • not let anyone drink and drive
  • not let kids get bullied
  • make sure nobody gets shot
  • make sure Masses are going on all day
  • make all money be spread evenly
  • make all troops go home
  • allow no one to earn lower than minimum wage
  • make sure all are fed
  • all animals will be treated better
  • environmental care
  • lower taxes
  • better pay and pensions for all
  • quality child care for all children
  • stop global warming
  • end all wars
  • improve quality of education for all

“Ridiculous”

  • ban written assignments
  • everyone’s nails/toes must have color
  • everyday was Christmas
  • everyone must wear colorful clothing
  • everyone must have a pet
  • everyone must eat corn for dinner
  • have all of the candy in the world sent to me
  • have a HUGE pizza party
  • no homework

If I were a King Essay

December 2, 2017 by Study Mentor 1 Comment

As a king, it would be great to have control over all that occurs in the state and building a place where you want to be and where everyone can be as they want to lead their lives. Basically, building a Utopia is what is the dream of the kings so that the subjects can live happily forever. There are many things to be undertaken by a king if we look closely.  

Table of Contents

Building the capital  

One of the most important job for the king is to build a perfect capital for all the people so that they can come to the capital very easily and talk about their problems.

The placement of the capital must be such that it is accessible to everyone. So, I will wake it just at the center of my kingdom. This is how I can control the kingdom with equal rights for every subject and I will build small local courts so that all those who cannot reach me at the capital may get the justice they deserve.   

Judicial System

Most of the places have a flawed judicial system. If I am the king, I would start making the judicial system perfect by creating a well-made session court controlled by me and numerous local courts. The judges of local courts will be handpicked by me through tests of knowledge and wisdom.

It is very important that they get the justice and in that way, they will have total faith on their king. It seems to be a bit of a problem to control the whole kingdom from a single place, so local courts will be very necessary. If the people working there are flawed and can be bribed the total Judiciary would crush. So, hand-picking is the best option to secure the place.  

Communal Harmony  

If I were a King essay

There will not be any scarcity of food because the farmers will not be burdened with paying taxes. Only the higher class will be subjected to taxation so that an economic balance is maintained in the society. Anybody trying to overpower another person or damage their property with the help of money will not be tolerated and will be put on trial according to the code of law.  

Strict punishments 

There are many criminals who are serious and continuous offenders in every place. These are some people who need to be off the streets so that people can live without fear. So, strict actions will be taken to the jail where they will be subjected to punishments like caged for a lifetime.

This will make it simpler for other offenders to understand and leave the wrong way of life. This is very necessary all around the kingdom and if I am building any place I would make it safe.  

Proper Education 

Every kid will be subjected to minimum education. There will be a fund made through the donations of rich people in the community and that will be utilized by the government in the kingdom to carry on the scholarships for the needy students in the kingdom.

My main motive as a king will obviously be creating a place will full educated people where everyone is skilled at what they do. The equal education and a minimum of skill learning will be made compulsory for everyone. The educational fees will be made keeping every people in mind as it should never depend on monetary perception.  

Proper Ministry

The ministers will not be selected through the same old tradition of family succession. To become a minister everybody will be subjected to go through proper examinations where their knowledge and honesty will be tested.

They will be subjected to go through medical tests and only then they will be selected. Basically, to head a particular department one need to be the best and bring out their best. This way, the ministry will not be flawed and every department will be governed perfectly.  

Science and Technology  

The science and the research department will be a separate sector in the kingdom where the enthusiasts will be encouraged to build better technology for the advancement of the kingdom. To grow, every kingdom requires improvement and in the modern world, only better technology holds the key to the new and better world.

The technology made will obviously be under scanner so that any fellow researcher never gets the chance of creating machines of mass destruction.  

Army and Defence

The army will be subjected to a great amount of training and will be given the best treatment from the kingdom as a token of gratitude for their service. The families of all army personnel will be given facilities to keep on with their living. The army will be under three sectors including naval troops, air troops and land troops.

They will be given the best weapons and technology so that they can easily protect the kingdom from foreign invasion. They will be frequently given medals and awards as a gesture that the kingdom also respects the fact that they stay awake at night so that we sleep peacefully.  

Final Verdict

The final verdict will always be from my mouth as the king before any department taking a particular decision. The final say proves that the control over the kingdom will stay in my hands. It will, therefore, be governed according to my will and therefore no harm will be done to the subjects and they can carry on with their happy life in their own perfect way.

This is how I will control my kingdom, so that it may flourish with improvements in technology, having a stable economy and keeping a communal harmony. Everybody deserves a life worth living and not some burden and this will be the word of advice for all my fellow subjects. It will be a great experience looking at a Utopia built by me.

If I Were King

By A. A. Milne

‘If I Were King’ by A.A. Milne is a highly entertaining poem. It contains the fantastical thoughts of a young boy who wants to be king.

A. A. Milne

Nationality: English

Notable works include  ' Spring Morning '  and  ' Vespers .' 

Emma Baldwin

Poem Analyzed by Emma Baldwin

B.A. English (Minor: Creative Writing), B.F.A. Fine Art, B.A. Art Histories

‘ If I Were King’ is a sixteen-line poem that is divided into sets of two lines, or couplets . The rhyme scheme of this piece, as with most poems aimed at a young audience , is consistent. It follows a pattern of AA BB CC DD, and so on, alternating end sounds throughout. The only couplets that have the same end rhymes are the first and the last with the “-ing” sound. They also share the same end words, “King” and “anything,” although they are reversed in order in the eighth couplet .  

In regards to the rhythm , ‘If I Were King’ is also very regulated. The lines are written in iambic tetrameter . This means that each line contains four sets of two beats. The first is unstressed and the second is stressed.

  • 2 Poetry Technique
  • 3 Analysis of If I Were King

If I Were King by A.A. Milne

The poem begins with the speaker telling the reader that he thinks a lot about what it’s like to be a king. He goes through a number of different countries and activities he’d like to participate, or not participate, in. These include keeping wild animals, like elephants, not wearing his hat or brushing his hair, and thinking of “lovely things to do.”

He shows his desire to gain some control over his life and those around him. The child speaker feels as if the rules imposed on him are unfair and would like to get rid of them. The funny, yet poignant, desires of the speaker are widely relatable to any child reading the text, making this piece a great example of children’s poetry.

Poetry Technique

One of the most common techniques used by Milne in this text is that of repetition . This functions well within children’s poetry as it adds to the sing song-like sound of the lines. It also makes it easier, and perhaps more fun for a child to hear read aloud, or read themselves.  

The technique can be seen taking shape more prominently as anaphora , or the repetition of a word or phrase at the beginning of a line. Milne makes use of the same phrases over and over again as the childish speaker describes what he would do if he were king. The words “If and “I” begin most of the lines.  

Analysis of If I Were King

Lines 1-4  .

I often wish I were a King, And then I could do anything. If only I were King of Spain, I’d take my hat off in the rain.

In the first line of ‘If I Were King’ the speaker begins by making the simple statement that he often wishes that he were “a King.” He has a very clear image in mind of what this means, and, as might be expected, it is charmingly humorous. This speaker is very clearly a child and therefore his ideas of what a king is and does are tinged by his youthful ignorance.  

He believes, perhaps rightly in some instances, that if he were a king then he “could do anything.” He reaches out in the next lines to try to think of all the fun and interesting things he’d have the power to do.

The speaker also moves through a number of different countries and activities. Many of these are on the speaker’s mind (probably) because his parents or some other authority figure told him he can’t do them. In lines three and four he imagines himself as the “King of Spain.” If this was the case then he’d take his hat off “in the rain.” This is such a random and strange thing to want to do it has to be connected to a very specific set of circumstances. Maybe he tried to take his hat off recently and a parent told him no.  

Lines 5-8  

If only I were King of France, I wouldn’t brush my hair for aunts. I think, if I were King of Greece, I’d push things off the mantelpiece.

In lines five and six the speaker brings up another country, this time France. He thinks that if he were the “King of France” that he’d be able to decide when and how he does his hair. This statement in particular seems quite relatable to a child’s experience. He would choose not to “brush [his] hair for aunts.”  

This phrase paints a very clear picture of a child who is reigned in when family members come to visit. He has to clean himself up in order to look presentable for “aunt,” or any other rarely seen relation.  

In lines seven and eight he pushes back against his family members by wishing that he could “push things off the mantlepiece.” This statement is different from the others. It shows the irritation the child feels over the regulated moments of his life. It is connected to the desire not to brush his hair and certainly seems like something an angry king might do.  

Lines 9-12  

If I were King of Norroway, I’d ask an elephant to stay. If I were King of Babylon, I’d leave my button gloves undone.

The next lines are more humorous and less tyrannical. The speaker wishes that he could become the “King of Norroway.” The addition of a syllable in the word “Norway” forces the meter into the same form but also adds a funny twist as if the child isn’t quite sure of the name of the country. He thinks about how cool it would be to have “an elephant…stay.” He could ask for and keep any animal he wanted if he were king. There would be no one to stop him.  

He also wonders about being the “King of Babylon.” In this scenario, he would “leave [his] button gloves undone.” This reads as another protest against the rules parents give their children.  

Lines 13-16

If I were King of Timbuctoo, I’d think of lovely things to do. If I were King of anything, I’d tell the soldiers, “I’m the King!”

In the final four lines, the speaker thinks about becoming the “King of Timbuctoo.” There is less definition to this position. All he knows is that he’d “think of lovely things to do.” This leaves his options wide open for whatever he can think of.  

The last lines show the child’s need (again) to have some power over his own life. He’d go up to the soldiers at his command and tell them that he is the king. There is no reason for him to do this, except to assert his control over someone else. This speaks to the helplessness and powerlessness that one can experience as a child.

If I were a King Paragraph for Class 4 & 5

imaginative boy

If I were a king, I would have asked masons to create a beautiful and colourful palace near seashore. My palace would have a beautiful garden where birds would sing song all day and squirrels would sit on branches of trees eating nuts. There would have been many horses and elephants while I would have a personal horse, white in colour. This horse must have been the fastest in the country. I would have built a large playground, where all my friends who were Kings of neighbouring countries, would have come to play together. As a King, I would have been responsible for maintaining discipline in the country and punishing the bad people. The thieves arrested by my guards would be sent to a jail and kept there until they could create things similar to what they tried to steal, with the same perfection as the original. My country would not attack any other country for expansion and would be against war. However, had anyone attacked our country, we would have been strong enough to defeat them. I would have set up big schools where children from poor family would receive education free of cost. The schools would have large libraries full of story books. My country would be clean and beautified with gardens full of flowers. No one would be allowed to throw litter, those who disobeyed this rule would have been punished by asking them to clean the area regularly for one week. My kingdom would have been strongest, peaceful where all my subjects, ministers and soldiers would have lived a fearless and happy life.

'That Is Absolutely Real': Jimmy Fallon Stunned Speechless By Hilarious RNC Clip

Josephine Harvey

Assignment Editor, HuffPost

if i was a king essay

Jimmy Fallon was momentarily speechless after showing an “unbelievable” viral video of West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice (R) at the Republican National Convention .

“We become totally unhinged if Donald Trump is not elected in November,” Justice says from the podium in the clip . Moments later, the C-SPAN camera shot switches to a wide angle with faultless comedic timing, showing a plump English bulldog parked on a chair to Justice’s right.

“Yes, that is absolutely real,” Fallon said after a beat.

“Why do I feel like they share a sleep apnea machine?” he asked.

“Looks like a Friars Club Roast on Animal Planet,” he added.

Babydog, Justice’s 60-pound English bulldog, was a hit at the event in Milwaukee, joining her owner onstage during his speech on Tuesday after the crowd chanted her name. According to Justice, Babydog predicts Republicans will win the November election in a landslide.

The Kings Coronation Activity for Young Students

Are you looking for a fun and engaging way to teach your students about the King’s Coronation? Why not get them to think about what they would do if they were the King or Queen with this cute write-and-craft activity?

Before giving this activity to your students, explain the role of a King or Queen as the ruler of a monarchy. Brainstorm what their role may entail and what are some things that past Kings and Queens have done for their community. This can give your students some ideas of what they may write on this fun writing task.

Learning About the New Monarch

The King’s coronation is an important topic for children in England to explore; here are some reasons:

  • Understanding current events – the new monarchy is an important part of England’s current events.
  • Understanding history – the new monarchy is part of England’s history.
  • Cultural awareness – the new monarchy is an important part of English culture.
  • Developing critical thinking skills – learning about the new monarchy can help children develop critical thinking skills.

✂️ Give Them the (Safety) Scissors 

This template makes for a bonus cutting skills activity, depending on your students’ ages and abilities. 

With adult supervision, cutting skills help students work multiple muscle groups and their brains, plus:

  • strengthen finger and hand muscles
  • build dexterity and fine motor skills
  • improve hand-eye coordination
  • develop focus and attention.

And all of these skills are necessary to use a pencil and a fork; button a shirt and tie shoes; write, type and swipe.

Scissor skills are brain and muscle skills!

Famous Poem

A. A. Milne

I often wish I were a King, And then I could do anything. If only I were King of Spain, I'd take my hat off in the rain. If only I were King of France, I wouldn't brush my hair for aunts. I think, if I were King of Greece, I'd push things off the mantelpiece. If I were King of Norroway, I'd ask an elephant to stay. If I were King of Babylon, I'd leave my button gloves undone. If I were King of Timbuctoo, I'd think of lovely things to do. If I were King of anything, I'd tell the soldiers, "I'm the King!"

Untold Dylan

The meaning behind the music and words of Bob Dylan

Untold Dylan

If I was a king: the 1966 mystery song unravelled

By Tony Attwood

The Edlis Cafe   Facebook group introduces “If I Was a King” from Disc 18 of “Cutting Edge” thus…

The true test of a Dylanista is to transcribe all the words to If I Was A King on Disc 18 of Cutting Edge.

And no I can’t.  Mind you my attempts to transcribe several other songs on this site have met with a fair amount of criticism (I’d say it is because I’m English, not American, they would have it that I can’t listen straight), and this song is just impossible to decode with certainty, although I know that one Dutch singer has issued a version of the song, so he’s obviously had a go.

But I can tell you a bit about the music – and give something of an insight into where the indistinct words are coming from.

The essence of the music comes from  Absolutely Sweet Marie  although obviously at a much slower tempo, and without any reference to the middle 8 that so particularly distinguishes Sweet Marie with its extraordinary change of key.

Now we know that Sweet Marie was recorded on 7 March 1966, in a single session.  The song, according to Heylin, was pretty much written when Dylan got to the studio and had just a few odds and ends in the lyrics to move around.  Heylin also tells us that the middle 8 (which as I pointed out in my review – see the link above – was of particular importance in the song) was added during the session.

Moving on to the North British Station Hotel, Glasgow, (which Heylin demotes to “a Glasgow hotel room) he tells us of “What kind of friend is this”, “I can’t leave her behind”, and “On a rainy afternoon” all being recorded but has not a single word to say anywhere on “If I was a king”.

But he does tell us that it was second cameraman in Pennebaker’s film unit along with film editor Howard Alk that got the recordings of Dylan and Robbie Robertson working on three “ song ideas ” (Helin’s italics – I am not sure why).

Heylin suggests some have said “What kind of friend is this” was possibly based on “What kind of man is this” by Koko Taylor.  This song was transcribed and copyrighted in 1978 – as were the other two Heylin mentions.  He notes that Dylan slides “in and out of coherence” in all three songs, but also says of the latter two songs, “Copywriting them as two separate songs is a slight swindle.  They are two streams drawn from the same river, as a more complete tape of the session… makes clear.”

Clearly “If I was a king” fits into this scenario – the lyrics being invented, mumbled, changed as we go along, but it wasn’t copyrighted, which suggests that maybe Dylan was remembering an old folk song – one might thing, an old Scottish folk song since that is where he was.

There are many folk songs from the British Isles that use the theme, for example, the Magpie’s Nest from Norfolk in East Anglia,

For if I was a king I would make you a queen, I would roll you in my arms where the meadows they are green; I would roll you in my heart’s content and I’d lay you down to rest Long side my Irish colleen in the magpie’s nest.

This also turns up in Ireland as “The Magpie’s Nest” and has been often used by blues singers.  Blind Willie McTell for example sang,

“I once loved a woman better ‘ere than I ever seen. Treated me like I was king an’ she was a doggone queen.”

It also turns up in  “The Bonny Brier Bush” re-written by Robert Burns – and since Dylan was sitting in a hotel in the country where Burns is the national poet, and symbol of the nation’s identity, maybe that turned his mind to the subject.

But the fact that it has so many musical elements of Sweet Marie in it, and the fact that that Sweet Marie was recorded on 7 March 1966, two months before the Glasgow hotel sessions, suggests either:

a) Dylan had indeed taken part of Sweet Marie from the “If I was a king” ballad in the first place and was just going back to it now that he was in Scotland, or

b) Having written Sweet Marie he was just having a bit of fun seeing where else it could go or

c) He was subconsciously drawing on past musical phrases he had composed and half remembered folk songs.

This last may seem a bit far fetched, but I think virtually every composer will admit to having had moments in which he feels “wow – this is going to be a great piece” only to find (or have it pointed out) a little later that it is “rather like that song you did last year…”

When writing a song, the song gets deeply inside your head, it becomes part of you, it is you, but then as you write other songs it becomes harder and harder to know if that is just an idea or an actual song you’ve already done.

I can’t tell you which of the three options is true, nor why Heylin failed to mention the song in Revolution in the Air when he has spent so long and been so assiduous in tracking down each and every song.  He knows about the session, indeed he spends three pages on it, and yet…

Dylan’s round of song writing in March 1966 was frenetic and included (in as close to order of composition as I can place it)

  • Absolutely Sweet Marie
  • Just like a woman
  • Pledging my time
  • Most likely you go your way and I’ll go mine
  • Temporary Like Achilles
  • Rainy Day Women
  • Obviously Five Believers

plus the songs heard in May in the Scottish hotel.

It was an extraordinary round of writing – not least because of the way in which Dylan was seeking to explore and stretch the form of the music he was writing for the double album.

And these were extraordinary times.   The Glasgow and Edinburgh concerts followed straight on from the Judas concert, but contemporary reports suggest that in Glasgow Dylan’s new style was welcomed.  However there is a report that quite a few members of the audience in Edinburgh brought along harmonicas to play as a protest when the electric set began.  (That might be just a story – I found it in the Daily Record – but it is very Edinburgh, no matter if it is true or false).

Billboard, in reporting “If I Was a King”, says it seems “a bit quaint and old-fashioned compared to the more electrifying material he was recording in this same time frame.”  But then Dylan has often moved back and forth – and the fact that he chose to sing this song twice at this moment must tell us something.

Dylan didn’t play Sweet Marie in Edinburgh – but then… I am not sure if that tells me anything or not.  Having looked it up, I thought I’d report it!

Musically “If I was a king” is hardly revolutionary – a nice rotating melody and chord combination – and if you don’t hear the link with Sweet Marie, just play them one after the other.  If only Dylan had written “If I was a king” first we’d know that was a sketch for Sweet Marie, but with Bob it’s never that simple.

>The Plain or Pan website has the subheading A Long-Haired Mule And A Porcupine Here which seems as good a way of introducing “If I Was a King” from Disc 18 of “Cutting Edge” as anything else. Their statement below says it all…

Not their statement but mine!

The attribution there is correct.

Edlis Cafe my sincere apologies. No offence intended

YouTube, Spotify, Deezer, Soundcloud. Take your pick of every version of every song composed, recorded or performed by Bob Dylan.

Based on movie ‘If I Were A King’ featuring poet Francois Villon (Ronald Colman).

See – Untold: Villon And Dylan

One version:

If I was a king, I’d walk the straight and narrow With a hundred stallions following me And if I was a rogue, I’d leave at midnight in the barrow With the Lone Ranger after me Well, I rode six mare – I’d lay the wagon by the spare road And here I stand with you facin’ me And, O Lord, the cost – my blood and my marrow With your hand always chasin’ me Well, I’d give all I had to tell her just this one word And for a kiss, I’d throw it all into the sea Ah, but here I stand on a lake with no sparrow None at hand here to comfort me And if I was a king, I’d give all my land up to her and let them come for me And if I was a rogue, I’d give her all of my luck And take my chances with that lake, and this blue

The third line only should in fact be “If I were a rogue…”

I changed the actually sung ‘ were’ to ‘was’ before I realized the proper use of the subjunctive case is likely intended here as ironic humour by Sherlock in his rendition of ‘If I Was A King’ in that the narrator is a supposed ‘rogue” but actually educated.

If I was a king all left in the marrow With a hundred stallions after me And if I was a rogue, I would lay in your jaw, mourning Larrow With the law hangin’ after me

I rode six mare, I’ve been on my wagon And now here I stand with your face in me And alone makin’ only that I’m morning marrow With her hand facin’ me

I’d give up all I have to tell her one thought To kiss I would give it up too, she could see But here I stand on a lake in the narrow wide road Come down in a lake flamed and free

If I was a king, I’d give her all my land To her and a road after me And if I was a rogue I would give her all my narrow dolphin And take my chances in the lake and the blue

I’d stand by her roil in the lonely water And I’ve stood there many times before, this you’ll see And I know that once she wake in my heart In a sense while she’s makin’ after me

I swear by her, by her uncle and her mother While she did her own black on me And I swore by her ring that she went in, I would go after And alone in makin’ after me

And if I was a king I would give her my castles I’don’t give her all my land given to me And if I was a rogue would steal her away from my island And take my chances in the deep blue sea

And now here I stand, stand by the Court Inn The rain ready to shelter me Chased by the rain and Snow White and all her Seven Dwarfs Chasin’ me, but I can’t, I cannot flee

*I’d give her all my land

The above is a possible copy of Jacques Mees’ words in his rendering of If I Were A King…perhaps Dylan’s start-up rendition was heading towards eventually becoming an analogy – a marrow/yarrow flowers-lovers comparison like the rose and briar in Barbara Allan.

Possible associative word-play abounding and re- bounding:

mare-O/ marrow courtin’/ Court Inn morning/mourning roil/ royal blew/ blue rain/ reign

rode/ road wake in/waken

facin’/ face in
