:: The Frog Prince Ironicals ::



I'd rather be a frog and then a prince
than a prince and then a frog
I may live alone for time can tell
Ugly and forgotten, in my well

But some day she'll come to take a sip
Of the well waters I live in so deep
To my fair maiden I'll croak my song
Of love and beauty for all day long

She'll fall in love for what's inside
The well and then for what's inside
She'll plant her kiss on me and like a wand
Turn me from the ugly duckling into a swan

The happily ever afters will follow thus
And end the markings of the humble past
I'll rule my kingdom with her by my side
And there'll be peace for far and wide

But then what if I was first the prince
I wouldn't even need to convince
Any fair maiden of how good I can be
For beauty and wealth will do, the work, for me

I'll find the prettiest maiden in town
Who looks the loveliest in her gown
And she'll be witty and everything too
The epitome of what the world can construe

But when my cheek the peck she plant
I'll hear an odd noise, like a gregorian chant (!~)
I'll shout and shout and shout and croak
I'll turn from mr charming into a scaly bloke

And she'll probably flee in terror and shock
I'll be lucky if she didn't kill me with a rock
And who will love me as they did in the past?
Even if anyone did try, will it last?

And when the hideous froggy me returns
Back to the slimy well, sad and spurned
The lady who loves me beyond my slime
I will love her back forever till the end of time

Better a happy ending
Than a happy beginning.

-- whimsically summing up the weekend --
