Once upon a time…
and they lived happy ever after…


             


 


 


 


Once upon a time… all fairy tales start thus…


A girl and a boy met on a city bus.


They got off together; went into a bar,


Got high on beer and coke, straight out of a jar.


Later that evening they crawled into a bed,


Where infatuation into sex it led.


After the act, as the boy zipped up his fly,


Asked for the girl's name. She laughingly said: "Why?"


"'Cause I had a good time; didn't you?" - he said.


"Maybe." - said she; so again they went to bed.


Three kids later they finally tied the knot.


They ought to have been happy; but they were not.


So the girl gave back her white wedding garter;


Divorced… and they lived happy ever after…

This is excellent. Your poem is a perfect anti-fairy tale. If only it wasn't true...

Greetings,

The honesty reaks with truth... and would make a wonderful lesson to be taught to some punky high-schoolers or freshman in University!

True story for many. Well done. Cynicism makes good poetry.
