Once upon a time

Once upon a time 
Except life is no fairy tale 
Cinderella didn't find her prince Little Bo Beeps sheep didn't come home 
The bears ate Goldilocks 
And Snow White was poisoned and she didn't wake up 
William Tell shot his kid straight through the heart 
Hansel and Gretel were forever lost in the forest 
Fairy tales 
Spun to make children feel better at night 
Sweet dreams 
Except 
I don't sleep 
And I don't have dreams 
And fairy tales and rhymes are lies 
There is no happy ever after

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
