An Unfairy Tale

On sounds of music she will dance,

With nimble feet like a fairy,

While crooning pop songs, she will prance,

As lips glow, a shade of cherry!


She dressed up for her prince charming,

A floral skirt with a tight top,

Her hips sway with smile disarming,

As thoughts of his touch play non-stop!


The whiff of cologne titillates,

For kisses on her neck, she craves,

But night arrives and hope deflates,

Her dreams drown in cascading waves.


But life’s a more unfairy tale,

To survive, she needs not a male!
