Once Upon A Time - Poem by Harry J. Couchon Jr

Once upon a time, once when you were mine
You and I were a fairy tale romance
The beautiful princess who kissed a frog
And lo and behold, he became a prince

But unlike the fairy tale ending
You and I didn't live happily ever after
You my princess left to find another
And without your kisses, me the prince
Found myself turned back into a frog

So here I am, croaking on a lily pad
Trying to get a princess to kiss me
So that once again I may become a prince
What's this I see? Oh no a hungry alligator

    I am sad that the fairytale did not end in the conventional way; here there is a twist and hopes to see yet another princess, I do hope she will enter after you have fought with the alligator…
    Nicely penned …giving it a realistic version… (Report) Reply
