Once upon a time 
~~~~~~~~ 
In a land far away, 
~~~~~~~~ 
A beautiful, independent,
Self-assured princess 
~~~~~~~~ 
Happened upon a frog as she sat
Contemplating ecological issues
On the shores of an unpolluted pond
In a verdant meadow near her castle. 
~~~~~~~~ 
The frog hopped into the princess' lap
And said: " Elegant Lady,
I was once a handsome prince,
Until an evil witch cast a spell upon me. 
~~~~~~~~ 
One kiss from you, however,
And I will turn back
Into the dapper, young prince that I am 
~~~~~~~~
And then, my sweet, we can marry 
~~~~~~~~ 
And set up housekeeping in your castle 
~~~~~~~~ 
With my mother, 
~~~~~~~~ 
Where you can prepare my meals, 
~~~~~~~~ 
Clean my clothes, bear my children, 
~~~~~~~~ 
And forever feel 
Grateful and happy doing so. "
~~~~~~~~ 
That night,
~~~~~~~~
As the princess dined sumptuously
~~~~~~~~
On lightly sauteed frog legs
~~~~~~~~
Seasoned in a white wine
~~~~~~~
And onion cream sauce,
~~~~~~~~
She chuckled and thought to herself:
 
~~~~~~~~
I don't F-ing think so.
