“The Fairy-Tale Delusion”

Good and humorous. Reblogged on davidbruceblog #2.

the prince lost his leather boot
the beanstalk rotted
Papa Bear ate Goldilocks for dinner
Rapunzel rappelled down the side of the tower

Snow White never tasted the poisoned apple
she was too busy
for seven needy dwarfs
to stop for a snack

in her spare time
she penned a best-selling novel
“The Fairy-Tale Delusion”


it was rumored that
Prince Charming swam off with a mermaid
on his Caribbean vacation

what line did Snow White write to end her children’s classic?

“She fought.
She survived.
She shared.
She thrived.”
