Tale Weaver/Fairy Tale – #175 – June 14th – Happy Ever After

Today, Michael asks us to consider the notion of “Happy Ever After’.

The Happy Ever After
Days filled with joy and laughter,
Not a care in the world, what fun
Is perfection itself for some.
A face always full of smiles,
Feet that don’t hurt from walking miles,
No aches and pains in our knees,
We can run and sprint if we please.
Things seen through the eyes of a child,
So easily they are beguiled.
A world full of love and glee
What a wondrous place it would be,
‘Cept our Leaders don’t want it so,
Changing minds, dealings to and fro.
They lie through their shimmering teeth,
Not a word of truth lies beneath,
The smile masks the lack of trust,
Happy Ever After fades to dust.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Great response Di. I often think what the criteria for being a politician must be. I’d love to be a fly on the wall when someone was interviewed for the job. “Can you lie, cheat and be totally egotistical?”
    “Yes?” You got the job.
