Today’s poem is for Kelly at Big A, little a. I don’t know how Kelly does all the things she does. She must be taking some magical megavitamins! She helped bring us the Cybils and The Edge of the Forest--and the extensive blogroll at Big A, little a is how I came to know of so many other wonderful kidlit blogs. Thanks, Kelly!
FOR SALE: FAIRY TALE ARTIFACT
by Elaine Magliaro
My magic mirror is for sale.
It’s such an awful tattletale!
It told me things about my foe
I’d really rather never know.
I MUST be fairest in the land…
Not second best! You understand?
I want to be the most divine.
My reputation’s on the line!
The seven dwarfs are little cretins!
They should be in the dungeon, beaten.
They foiled my plans to kill the lass.
So…now I’ll sell my looking glass
And spend the cash on wrinkle cream,
A nose job, and a health regime,
Two weekends at a beauty spa.
Then I’ll look like a movie star.
I’ll be the fairest in the land!
And Snow White? She can go pound sand!
