horrors of fairytales poem for preteens

Princess Misled: Kissed a bunch of frogs They were still frogs in the end. Kissed toads, until warts grew Why is what you're looking for Always in the last place you look I asked myself.? I needed my Prince Oh how I needed my hero. Ready to give up, I drank Potions from the last cauldron. About to call it a life. My Fairy Godmother Was a Witch..... I Was under her spell Still I searched once Again to no avail. One last kiss did I perform To my surprise this last frog Transformed; When the Prince saw me, with warts On my skin: Mission Completed as this now my end. The moral of the story is as clear As can be, Mono or herpes is not Worth the risk. The toads that you kiss... May not be so charming;Fairy Tale Metaphors, may prove be alarming. Real Princesses, go home When they leave the ball,, The Prince was not very happy, not Happy at all: He ran away screaming... "Ladies and Princesses should never kiss frogs "

Hi Vicki. This is a very strong and creative poem and a good cautionary tale. There are so many types of frogs out there and the risks are great. I enjoyed this one, my friend.... Robert.
