A Fairy Tale



Oh, to be sweet Goldilocks

Perfection found in each third

Best love found within a box

Not hidden amongst the herd


Oh, to be the great Humpty

Just sitting on sunny wall

The only purpose for me

Be the one who takes the fall


Oh, to be Sleeping Beauty

Awaiting true love’s kind kiss

Real love born of sensed duty

Chance impossible to miss


Oh, to be Red Riding Hood

Strolling through the woods in red

Feeling that there is some good

In a hungry wolf well-fed


Oh, to be that silly Jack

Hand in hand with lovely Jill

Just one chance to kiss her back

Before falling down the hill


Oh, to be a fairy tale

Where impossible not known

To think that love would prevail

Story not ended alone

    Oh to be the little mermaid
    And give up my voice for
    he who sits on the throne
    Only to watch him marry another
    I thrust myself back into the sea alone
    Nothing left of me but foam
