A Fairy Tale For The Assertive Woman

For women everywhere........
           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 setup housekeeping in yon 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,
           on a repast of lightly sauteed frogs legs
           seasoned in a white wine
           and onion cream sauce,
           she chuckled to herself and thought:
           I don't fucking think so !!!!!
