The Princess And The . . .

picture from favim.com

I took their stupid test.
On a pea, I could not rest
despite the many mattresses they piled.

But, there's no happily ever after
for the real crux of the matter
is a prince who pees the bed just like a child!

An "Un-Fairytale" for Real Toads

Definitely pushing the fairytale envelope, MZ. Obviously a renegade reject from the Princess Bride.

In AA there's a large faction of blackout bed-wetters. Better than the crew that watered their girlfriend/wife's panty-drawer. And shoe closet. Even on the dog. Real princes. "Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your red hair / you're about to become a blonde ..."
