I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.
I once was a Prince, why won’t you believe
All I need is a kiss from you to aid in this release
I know I am not attractive now, but I assure you I am a handsome catch
Just give me a kiss and stand back and watch,
As I transform into a hot Prince of your liking
Mannerable and rich, not rude and crude like a Viking
Hold on give me a second while I enjoy this fly
Don’t puke now, if I don’t eat I die
Now, where were we, ahh yes, a kiss on the lips?
Come now my future princess, let’s make it quick
Hey, come back, why are you running away
I only have twenty four hours for my true love kiss else forever I remain this way
Oh no, my true love ran away now I may remain amphibian forever
Curse that wicked witch, now my life is without pleasure
Jason, Jason, wake up! What are your whimpering about?
Come take out the trash, last night’s fish bones are stinking up the house
When you are through go sweep up the yard and get me some fire wood
You God damn lazy boy why don’t you do what you should?
Clean up this room and get your dirty socks off the floor
We feed your lame butt now go do your chores
Me and your Pa will be going into town for an hour or so
Make sure when we get back you do what you are told
Now get the heck out of bed before I give our breakfast to the quails
Laying there moving like a God damn snail
Jason hugged his pillow and wished his dream had come true
Of being kissed and becoming a Prince to escape his home made zoo
He longed for a life where he found true love and riches
But it was back to reality for him when he remembered the dirty dishes.
