Castles in the air

Once Upon A Time...

And so the story went,
Till it reached the point of Happyeverafter,
The End.

But as the lights went out-
the magic slowly faded...
And I waited...
And waited...

For my knight in shining armour
upon his gallant steed.
And I waited.
And waited.

For my rescue, for my saviour,
with a never-ending greed.
And I waited.
How I waited!

Alas, the knight was but a fool,
his armour old tin foil-
his fumbling, tumbling, mount,
a donkey swathed in drool.
But I'd waited.
I had waited.

Yes, I waited-
But for what?
