Once upon a time,
The tale begins, as all fairy stories do,
When we all loved in the forest
And everybody loved everyone else
Except,
Once upon a time,
The memories were sweet
As apple blossoms on the morning
Like spun sugar on a hot summer day
It was all perfect, but
Once upon a time.
The flare of passion burned as relentlessly
As the fires under a cauldron and twice as hot
And then,
Once upon a time stopped being a fairy story
And became a scary tale…
Well fuck that noise.
I’ll make my own story thanks.
