The Fairy Tale

Max is 6 and wears a toddler shoe
Vowing to be small forever
The mad scientist has a plan
That will work

Eileen’s tears wish her life was
A fairy tale
Life is real
Life is real

What hour does the laughter curdle
And the sarcasm blacken bread

Little ribs
Little ribs
Tickle tickle tickle
A motor boat and
Rubber fish in the tub

Alice the toad
Lives in the tree root
The hummingbird
Does come to eat

Leave us alone
We want to do
What we want to do
We want to play
Now go away
