Donna's Unicorn

Donna set out to mount a unicorn; but, inadvertently, she grasped his horn; and, unfortunately, his horn she shorn. She clasped in hand that torn tremendous thorn. Since now there's nought his forehead to adorn, she, per force, mounts horse; both, of course, forlorn.

Your work reminds me of a song by the Irish Rovers. Good descriptiveness and rhyming here.

I guess the magic went when the horn did. Never mind, a horse is more than special and I'd give anything to ride one again. Poor Donna should have held the reigns! :)
