'Fiction is the true story of what never happened' - 'Making History' by Stephen Fry

All around, joy and lights.
The music too loud, the lamps to bright.
But everyone is happy, all is good.
There is just one small thing.
It's a terrible pity I can't join in.
I can't enjoy the dance and delight
Because no boy had to fight
For my consent to join in on the fun.
In fact, no boy asked me at all.
Why can't I be the princess that goes to the ball?
Why can't I be the one that makes the men steer
In my direction, shouldn't I be given the chance
To have just one heartfelt slow dance?
And while the boys take all their dates home,
I sit on the bench, sad and alone.

This is my first piece of work on here, so be nice! Written after being forced to go to a ceilidh and NOT ENJOYING IT ONE BIT.
Will be posting a lot of poems right now, and once I find out how the book thing works, I may be posting my unfinished book on here too! (I'm only up to chap. 9. Can anyone tell me if I'm able to upload what I've done even though it's far from finished?)
