Two Feet Long

Once upon a time

Beyond tales and rhyme

There lived a princess in a tower.

               

Her hair was beholden

To be long and golden

Shining through the bower.

 

 Her thief-father stole some veg

Which pushed the witch over the edge;

She bade him bring her the child.

 

 The witch named the child Rapunzel

And hid her in a dense German jungle

The child’s hair, too, grew long and wild.

 

A prince wandering through the forest

Came upon fair Rapunzel

In a tower lost to time.

 

“Let me up! Let me climb!

Young maiden, you are fairer than rhyme.”

 

Alas, when she let her hair down,

It only extended two feet from her crown.
