Once Upon A Time - Poem by Mark R Slaughter

Once upon a time,
I lived a life sublime.
Known to others,
Sharing drinks;
We the brothers -
Really!

Now methinks
Upon the time that was...
It never happened -
No, sincerely no! -

Just a show,
A dream,
To boost esteem -
Apple pie and cream
To give a glow.

So once upon a time
There was a me -
Well, a brain
inside a skull
To ever mull
And ponder.

No wonder I was only
Once upon a time.
