Much Ado About a ‘Do

Much Ado About a Do by B.J. Lee

When Rapunzel the fair had let down her long hair,
Goldilocks, shocked, stood stock-still to stare.
Finally Goldi called, “Hey you up there,
what product is giving you such great hair care?”

Rapunzel said, “If I were freed from this lair,
I’d show you my tricks and give your hair some flair.”
But Goldilocks told her, “No way! You’ll stay where
the princes can’t see your hair. No, I won’t share!”

Rapunzel cried, “Goldilocks, I do declare,
your selfishness fills me with deepest despair.
You must be aware there are princes to spare.
I hope, down the road, you run into a bear!”

A whimsical collection of fairy tales. Ever wished to be like Sleeping Beauty so you could take a nap–for once? Isn’t it a bit annoying how the fairytale princes always get the girl, or how the three little pigs always beat the wolf? Well, that’s all about to change. . . .
