From A Fairytale Narrator

Magic creeps in where it shouldn’t be.
That’s what it delights in –
The unexpected turn, the misspoken word,
The mischief to be made and gift to be given.
Magic will turn the world upside down, if you let it.

Sometimes that’s what the world needs –
A good shaking up so it can crash down.
Some windows deserve to be broken.
Some peasants are better as king.

And sometimes that’s what makes the world hurt –
Not all good things need to be destroyed.
Some old ladies deserve soft places to land.
Some heroes should never be heard of again.

Still, that’s life, or what we make of it.
You want a different story – tell it yourself!
