poem-princess? February 6, 2016

She says she’s not waiting for a handsome prince

and laughs like she’s joking.

But she had a handsome prince

and she she treated him like a frog,

so if one was to come along now,

I’m pretty sure she wouldn’t even recognize him.

    kisses chris

    Nice, a different twist. I like these lines- “But she had a handsome prince
    and she she treated him like a frog” … Sometimes we’re looking for a prince, and he’s right before us.

  3. That knife cuts both ways. Many a princess has found herself cast in the dust.

    I always wonder if you’re writing these bits about people you actually know. It makes me want to know the whole story, and meet the lady who treated the prince like a frog.

    Wow, that sounds dreamy! A weekend long writers’ festival? My people!
