LOGIN: Remember Me
A Fairy Tale in the Real World
Sherry L. Towns ©2011
Fairy Godmothers will dress you in weird clothes
and make you wear uncomfortable shoes,
And just when the party gets started,
The clock chimes … it’s midnight!
And that’s your curfew.
Your limo turns back into a pumpkin
And you stand dressed in rags and orange goo…
You see fairytales never work here in
The real world, they’ve never worked out for me
Don’t wait for a prince for a rescue,
It’s you who must set yourself free.
Golden curls shouldn’t mess with the big bears
It’s dangerous out in the woods,
Though big bear beds can be cozy
And I’ve heard that the porridge is good.
bears they are grouchy and grumpy and snarly;
they really love curly gold hair…
But they get scary angry at anyone who
dares sit in their comfy chairs.
When I was a young one, I wanted Prince Charming
To take me away from here,
He rode a white charger, was dashing and told me
Everything that I wanted to hear,
But the difference between princes and toads… it’s
Confusing … you need to rely on your ears…
Where princes will always say what they mean toads
never mean what they say,
And by the time you discover the toad is your lover
he’s taken you farrrrrrr, far away.
Oh, I know there’s a land with more magic
Than fairytales… True Love is its name.
It doesn’t steal to possess you,
Rearrange or re-dress you.
It wants you the way that you came.
And when two true lovers meet,
You know it’s really quite sweet.
And when they’re swept away it’s
to a land where they both want to be.
They’re in a land that they both want to see.
Though fairytales have never worked here in
The real world, and they’ve never worked out for me
I still hope that I find this Land that’s
Called True Love…
It sounds like a swell site to see.
It sounds like a great place to be.
You know it sounds like the best home to me.
