the lies of the happily ever after

October 29, 2007
By Alec Miller, Purcellville, VA

The evil conquered.
Good springing up like trees.
Happy little dancing flowers.
All were blissful
and bored half to death.

Oh sure the land was an island of good in a sea of evil.
But there was nothing
or even annoying
to make everything worse,

It was all just a dim, dark dreary, dream come true
A boring, yet light dream.

After shutting a book of happy little fairy tales Cinderella,
Sleeping beauty,
or Snow white
Just remember
that happy ever after
always isn’t that happy for some.
