Beauty or Beast?
Come 'round and hear the story
of a lass with nightmares to tell!
Although, she was trapped
in a luxurious castle,
she was a strong lass,
her heart pure and true,
her fear was that one day
she would turn into a shrew.
For this lady fair
gave everything she had
to a man who resembled a bear.
Knights tried to save her
but she did not wish it so,
"Begone," she'd shout to the Knights so true
"My love is stronger than you!"
"Why do you love him," said the Knights in blue
"this man is a Beast, why, he could eat you!"
The lady laughed
for she knew...
"My love is a beast
that may be true
but he takes care of me
that much I can prove.
I have a home full of servants
cooking and cleaning all day.
At dinner the only lights that shine
are the sparkles in his baby blue eyes.
After dinner we dance
to our favorite song
while he woos me all night long.
At the end of the night
when we are through
he escorts me to the door to my room.
He kisses me goodnight
and that is all--a gentle Beast through and through."
The Knights, bewildered, turned to leave
but one heartbroken Knight turned and said:
"Stay here forever
and you'll regret not leaving,
never seek our help
be forever a knave."
The Knights rode off, without a prize,
to tell their King of thier demise.
The lass knew they would never know
how her love could grow and grow
for the Man that loved her so.
They saw a Beast, but she saw a Man,
it begs to question
who is Beast
and who is Man.
