This is the fairy tale that should have been read to us when we were little:
 
 
Once upon a time
~~~~~~~~
in a land far away, 

~~~~~~~~
 
a beautiful, independent,

 
self-assured princess 

~~~~~~~~
 
happened upon a frog as she sat

contemplating ecological issues
on the shores of an unpolluted pond
 
in a verdant meadow near her castle. 

 
~~~~~~~~ 
 
The frog hopped into the princess' lap and said: " Elegant Lady,
I was once a handsome prince,
until an evil witch cast a spell upon me.
~~~~~~~~
One kiss from you, however,
 
and I will turn back
 
into the dapper, young prince that I am
~~~~~~~~
and then, my sweet, we can marry
~~~~~~~~
 
 
and set up housekeeping in your castle
~~~~~~~~
with my mother,
~~~~~~~~
where you can prepare my meals,
~~~~~~~~
clean my clothes, bear my children,
~~~~~~~~
and forever feel
 
grateful and happy doing so. "
~~~~~~~~
That night,
~~~~~~~~
as the princess dined sumptuously
~~~~~~~~
on lightly sauteed frog legs
~~~~~~~~
seasoned in a white wine
~~~~~~~
and onion cream sauce,
~~~~~~~~
she chuckled and thought to herself:
~~~~~~~~
 
I don't fuckin' think so.
