the prince and the pretense
By Candy Cain
Princes proceed through the vains
to pry open the pristine
treasure in the chest.
Princes can jump start your engines
Loosening layers so a prisoner
under pressure's less depressed.
Princes can breakdown a complex process
offering you something practical
to make you better than your best.
But if Princes are all in fairy tales
very well, I'll play pretend
and pray we'll never reach the end.
