This wasn’t like the stories I’d been told
Fables, treasures, times of old
My breath was short, my legs did ache
How many steps for goodness’ sake?
I know each challenge differs in the story
How the hero gets their glory
All Prince charming did was fit a shoe
Surely that’s something I could do?
Rapunzel’s beau just climbed a rope
Then he had the cheek to gloat!
Snow white’s prince gave just a little kiss
Not exactly the hardest task of his
For my true love the task I face
In this ancient magical place
Is to climb this never-ending tower
And reach the room by witching hour
I spot the window and take a glance
This looks like it’s my only chance
Outside is a ladder how had I missed it
To reach my future I had to risk it
Dangling off the ledge I made the leap
It only really was a few feet
Climbing up my arms started to burn
I was quite unfit I was starting to learn
In another window, I saw the door
Pushing it open I heard a loud snore
Stretched out on the couch in front of the tv
My dream man laid before me!
What’s for dinner he said with a stretch and yawn
I shake my head maybe I was wrong
It must be a trick of some kind
This wasn’t the prince I had in mind!
