The Woman and the Lime

Once Upon A Time,

There was a woman

Who had fallen in love with a lime.

Outside of her village,

There was a witch

Who told the woman her lime will become a prince.

The witch casted a spell upon the fruit,

And suddenly it was a toad!

The woman began to cry out

She yelled to the heavens;

Tears streaming down her face.

The perfect piece of citrus she once loved,

Was now a reptilian.

The witch told her to kiss the toad,

And it would become what she truly desires.

At first she was hesitant,

Then she laid her lips upon the bumpy surface

And the toad turned into a lime.
