There are fantasies derived from woodland Fairies

Not much different than the ones that Pixies tell;

They gently blend the world of romantic fiction

With a touch of Leprechaun, --- as well.

 

But this one has no long-haired, lovely, maiden

And there is no Gallant Knight upon a Steed;

You shall not hear of Unicorns in misty forests

For this story seems to sprout from darker seed.

 

***

 

 There is a Troll, hidden beneath a bridge

Waiting for a victim to come along.

The Troll has not eaten in many days

And to him the lack of nourishment is wrong.

 

He waits and listens for something crossing

His bridge, --- A sheep, a goat, or cow.

He is hungry and his patience has grown short,

He would eat --- almost anything right now.

 

Well, along came Mother-Badger seeking food

And as she crossed the bridge she heard twigs crunch.

The Troll tried to sneak up right behind her,

Now Baby-Badgers are having Troll --- for lunch.
