Belle, Brooke & Candice
Once Sir Chancalot, one bachelor, who felt the ticking clock
(Still to meet a wife), had found the market somewhat out of stock.
Then he used the door to Prestidigitown, through mists and gasses.
And once there he soon encountered three intriguing magic lasses.
Well the first of these had hair of red, and bore the name of Belle.
She soon quickly made the moves on him, and cast her tempting spell.
Now he would have been so taken by her keen, direct attention.
But the woman had a husband, whom she took a while to mention.
Then the next had dark brown hair, and introduced herself as Brooke.
So he thought they'd ride off on his horse; until he had a look,
And he learned, that though divorced (with lots of help from her attorney),
That one still held too much baggage to be carried on the journey.
Then the last was Candice, blond, a widow, seeking wedding bell.
She would book her parents' babysitting help sometimes, as well;
So the candle could be lit and placed upon the dining table.
Her own family welcomed him aboard the good ship Marriage Fable.
Now's the time to take a shopping trip. What will she need to buy?
Some disposable relationships, in case the lucky guy
Then turns out to be a man that ladies didn't ought to chase;
And she'd better have some non-stick bargain kisses, just in case.
She'd best grab a no frills friendship, to ensure the wrong idea
Won't be devastating someone who might well be ever near.
Since rechargeable composure's been discounted for a week,
She should order spray-on smiles and good advice that doesn't squeak.
There's a bachelor on special at the market, for a while.
She can find him, if she takes a walk along the proper aisle.
She deserves the second chance, that widows should receive for free,
With a complimentary greeting to commence her shopping spree.
