"Courage is grace under pressure." -Ernest Hemingway


Mirror, mirror on the wall,

Who's the fairest of them all?

 

Why must it be only most fair?

Why just rosy lips and dark hair?

 

Why not the smartest, bravest, most bold?

Is only beauty worth being told?

 

Only the prince can save the princess?

How does he he even find her address?

 

Why is the princess always petite and frail?

So only "princely protection" will prevail?

 

Why can't the prince be the one in distress?

Does a heroine excite any less?

 

The beautiful world of a fairytale,

Is fantasy fit on an unfair scale.
