Fairy Tales - Poem by gershon hepner

Unearned, and so completely undeserved,
misfortune, not good fortune, makes
the world go round, but do not be unnerved,
for some of us must pay for our mistakes.

The giantkiller Jack is just a fool,
but steals the giant’s gold despite his genes,
and happy endings don’t seem very cool
while wolves like crooked judges steal the scenes.
