A poem from a night of Improv Poetry I just completed, title suggested by my twin neices.

A Happily Ever After

Sing a song of six pence
add a pocketful of whimsy,
As wishes fall upon a star,
those who reign in the celestial
heavens, Will you promise thee a Happy Ending?

As Maidens claim their war-torn Heroes,
while frogs get to acquire balls of gold,
Swans transform into beautiful Princesses,
Those who reign from the landscape above,
I ask humbly, will you promise thee a Happy Ending?

While Dryads dance in the forest,
to the tunes of the Satyr's pipe,
Unicorns graze in the everlasting glade,
Those who reign from the ether above,
I request beseechingly, will you promise thee a Happy Ending?

Thrice I ask for this wish to be granted.
Isn't that how the fairytale goes?
A lost soul finds their way against the stark odds.
Won't fortune favor my boldness?

I ask for the same treatment, the same regard.

To receive a Happy Ending, my Happily Ever After.
