An apple red as blood
Hear you go dear 
Take it with cheer 
It's sweet as sweet can be 

If only you would runaway 
Or something like that
My mirror just won't let me be
As I look into it, it keeps reminding me 

Alas, I'm not the fairest of them all  
That makes my blood boil as I walk past 

My husband says, Oh my beauty she is a child
I say, yes, she is a coming of age child 
And she is your child at that 
There can only be one queen of this manor 

I will send my huntsman to retrieve her heart
Then maybe this thorn in my side will subside
She will be gone once and for all from my site

Or maybe the huntsman will be her prince charming
And they will ride off together, never to be seen again

So here my child take this apple and eat
This blood red apple is calling to you 
And be on your way for good this day
I should never want to see you again

    Vanity--it seems can lead to some incredible adventures. Mirror mirror on the wall / who's insanest of them all? / Nasty, mean, from Islam / said the glass 'tis Saddam. / Appalled Bush bawled, "Bastard you'll fall." So--you chose to write about something quite important. Your sense of direction must be really good. Certainly appreciated here. I am impressed. Also, you have good taste in actresses!

    Yes! "Now! Take a bite!" This is one of my favorite images - that old hag witch encouraging Snow White. Enjoyed your poem's presenting the other side of the coin. LOve, daver

    Best to keep your heart young lest your beauty steals the breath from your wisdom Debbie - a great display of emotion contesting with values - J.A.B. %

    clever write, Debbie - I haven't seen the film yet, but I loved the Snow White story as a boy

    nicely written....enjoyed..

    Now that I have read your poem, I will have to check out that flick. I liked Charlize in "That Thing You Do". She only played a small part in that film. Despite a few typos present, this is a good write.

    I miss wisteria lane or maybe it's Terry Hatcher. :) Quite a vent of torrent emotion here. Have a blessed day. :) Forgive me for using your moniker, but it seems apropriate when communicating with you. Soooo. Have a blessed night too. :)

    a fairy tale from a different perspective indeed! Thanks for your comment on Blood on the Ballot. Whether or not there are many homeless children in the world is no excuse to kill the innocent ones coming into it. There are other alternatives to the barbaric scenario the world chooses today. perhaps some day we as a people will become civilized. One can only hope. Thanks again, Debbie.I liked your take on the fairy tale.
