King Felix the Great
Once upon a time is an often overused phrase meant to give a perception of time. In this case, it’s the perfect phrase. So again let’s begin on a fairytale adventure that all happened once upon a time in a far-away land. The kingdom of Felix the Great, to be exact.
Felix the Great was a sly sly cat.
The king of a kingdom, he was a great man
Often looked at as a man of riches
Nobody saw in his pants all the stitches.
A poor king he was so his kingdom was not,
There were few people who knew all the lot
One day eating breakfast he said to the maid
“Bring me a biscuit, you will be paid!”
She brought him a biscuit and was given a dime
She ran to her room and returned in quick time.
The king said one more thing before he rose,
“A dime will be yours if you bring me socks with toes.”
The maid went away and returned as requested
The king didn’t tell her she was being tested.
“Well young maiden, I have no more change
But I must say, I’m feeling quite strange.
The biscuit you served me will not go down now,
And the socks you have brought me hurt me somehow.
Return the socks, kindly, and a bucket I need
And in turn I’ll pay you with a lovely seed.”
She turned and went in an unhappy manner
What sort of king who has many banners
Who needs not a penny from charities large?
Pay his maid seeds, not that which she charged??
Away she went and never came back
The king indeed was a sly, sly cat.
Mysteriously he got riches a many
He no longer wanted for even a penny.
The maid was a leech, and demanded too much
The king decided there was no time as such
To find a wife who would love him a while
And possessed her own personal style.
Along came a lady who stole his heart
He gave her a dime and of his house, a part
Gladly she took it and moved on in
They had 2 children, Maxine and Brin.
Maxine did cooking, cleaning and serving
Brin did hard labor and of sleep was deserving
Together they made up the small work force
That ran the house of the king, of course.
The king later died and his house was for them
Prince Brin became king and had a wife named Slim
Princess Maxine disappeared in the woods
And eventually the house of the king was no more.
So indeed once upon a time fit this story. The king, his maid, his wife, son and daughter lived a story unusual but normal. People may judge and say my poem is bad, but honestly who writes the rules of an act of expression?
