Unhappily Ever After ~ After

Updated on July 16, 2015

Prince Charming sped off riding, hugging Goldilocks by his side

Cinderella's barefoot, left in ashes~no longer Charmings' bride

Little Red, all grown up, shares a cavern with three bears and a wolf

'Abra-Cadabra' are meaningless words as Merlin's wand goes "Poof"

'Once Upon a Time'~Brought to life, twisted all to Hell

Nightmares Grimm~Geese don't fly, in this fairy tale

'Happily Ever After' is how the stories ended~as you closed the book

Wake up Princess~Go to the mirror and take a second look

You'll see three pigs who own a mansion that's made of air, built on a bridge named Gruff

Jack is limping on a crutch and Hercules ain't tough

The Old Woman got a face lift and left her shoe,her soul~and her kids behind

A man chewed, swallowed and then puked up the Gingerbread man and see ~the Wicked Witch is kind

Mr. Spratt was judged bulimic when he ate his wife in vain

Ask any chicken that you pass, if it feels like rain

Miss Muffet owns a silk industry and sells venom on the side

People line to seek the truth, from a puppet boy who lied

A fishermans' wife left her husband and ran away with a talking fish

Genies are rubbing magic lanterns, hoping for a wish

Rumpelstiltskin owns a shop that turns gold into hay

Midas visits often, sometimes three times in a day

The dish and spoon have separated~cows no longer jump

I hear a Blue Boy found his horn inside a beanstalk stump

Marys' lamb leads her now, to where he wants to go

Bet on turtles in any race over hares who run too slow

Rapunzel sports a shiny scalp, she buffs it every morn

The Emperor actually holds the title for having most clothes worn

Humpty Dumpty sat so long he rotted right in place

Miss Peep still wanders aimlessly~her sheep lie under face

Hansel and Gretal in a sticky situation close to Halloween day

Masqueraders out trick or treating, bagged their home away

Belle lost her sight~three mice now read to her aloud and the Prince remains a beast

There is no moon to light the night, the sun sets in the East

That Horner kid lives in a house that's circular inside

Lions seek wisdom~Scarecrows want hearts and the Tin Men they seek pride

The Prince to marry was cannabis and didn't have a pea

Mr. Dum became president~or was that Mr. Dee?

The King and Queen on welfare are eating blackbird soup

That crooked family never straightened out~got 20 in the coup

Thieves stole three bags from a sheep~ made masks~then robbed a candy store

Gulliver married and he carries his bride by his fingers four

Too much plastic surgery turned some duck into a rubber raft

Miss Beautys' fired, keeps nodding out, while spinning out her craft

Jack and Jill,two mountain climbers~never come down for air

James has roaches, like Joe's Apartment~from living in a pear

Hans still blowing soap bubbles 'cause he won't quit saying "Damn"

Blaming cross dress during the melting, the soldiers' now called Ma'am

"Two~One~My Shoes Undone"~is a rap song~sung by Ole K.Cole

A man vanished while swimming~same time a frog drowned in his pool

G.G. is being treated for bad gastritis and never leaves her house~she smells like rotten eggs

A Mermaid bought a rotor saw and chopped off both her legs

Mrs. Hubbard won best recipe for original dog stew

Vacation photos a many for Piggy # 2

Twinkle became a household name, a star, world known, for sure, indeed

That weird kid built his home around his cradle that still hangs upon a weed

Dwarfs of seven they are all under psychiatric care

Brothers Winken, Blinken and Nod sit for days and stare

The magic's gone, rainbows none, pots of gold are rust

Stars have all been shot, wells dried up and fairies have no dust

Open Sesame is just a fancy name for seeds you need to sack

The Muffin Man ran out of dough, he spent it all on crack~

Hatred plays in place of love~Boldness looks like fear~

No one's happy~they're all sad~Hence, I shed a tear~

If fairy tales don't really come true~That shatters all my dreams~

And "WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET" is what it TRULY means~
