A tale better told

Give me a paper and I’ll tell you a tale

Of a girl with a smile and story to tell

She could read any story

And find meaning within

That would steer her mind away

From the home she lived in

One story in particular caught her attention

It was of a fairy princess with evil intention

How could this be?

She would wonder aloud

A princess of fantasy can’t be the rout


So she crafted a story with a much happier note

In this story a princess lived in a boat

It wasn’t a regular boat to be told

Instead it was crafted with fine magical gold

Only the true hearted souls get enter the ship

So it remained full of pleasantries and no one ever got sick


Which story is better is the question you may wonder?

That is the question you are left with, my consorter.
