Twisted Fairy Tales

We've experienced some changes
along with the twists and turns of socitey
so have the fairy tales we were once told as children
Now I present to you, some modern day fairy tale endings

"Rapunzel, Rapunzel! Let down your lonf hair!"
"Uhhh... NO! That braid was so last century.
I have a bob now, and might I add,
no split ends. Isn't it fab?"

"Mirror, Mirror on the wall,
Who is the fairest on of all?"
"Oh my gosh, the lighting in this thing is aweful!
It makes my pores look huge!
Ewwe... That's gross! I need that proactive stuff!"

"Fee, Fii, Fo, Fum!
I smell the blood of and englishman."
"That's no man you smell,
It's straight-up oldspice homedawg!
Plus with these new Nike's,
there's no way I'm climbing up yo green ladda."

So there you have it,
times have surely changed.
some good, some bad
but nowhere near what we were raised on.
