Though She Betrays Her Bookworm Lover - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

The promises fly so high
And the betrothel goes astray
But he never repents
As he drowns in a passage of a book
That says a King was abandoned by the Queen
And she eloped with the stableman.

    A fairy tale that does not end happily ever after. Fascinating, as always, my friend.

    Warm regards,
