Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time,

Dragons breathed an inferno

Of flames.

Evil stepmothers and

Wicked witches were all

Too common.

Princesses wore glass shoes, met

Dwarves, and slept

On peas.

Fairies fluttered everywhere.

Trolls and ogres patrolled

The plains.

Princes were turned

To frogs, then

Turned back

Again.

Unicorns pranced, pixies

Danced, and

Everyone had a

Fairy godmother

Once upon a time,

In a world made of

Parchment and

Ink.
