It was Good While It Lasted


I once was a prince which was turned to a frog by the evil witch
Then the beautiful princess saw me and I croaked and we were friends
I croaked and she listened and she told me her life in the palace
She came to the pond every day and we fell in love, she kissed me
I was immediately turned back to a prince and boy, was I handsome
I asked the king for the princess’ hand and he approved
The day we got married, the whole village celebrated
All the lovely ladies in the village were there, too
I was enamoured by them and they to me
I started having some extra love affairs
After all, it had been years and years that I was a frog
The princess found out about my affairs and she was mad
She went to the wicked witch and pleaded with her
To turned me back to a frog and the evil witch did
Now I’m back to the pond croaking forever after

  1. Lady Lee – thanks so much for playing with the TW/FT prompt! I love the point of view – well done – and how well thought out that after all those years, his true nature had to come to life, “chasing skirts” …. LOL —- wonderful idea and exploration – and so, naturally, to be turned back? Bet “froggy boy” didn’t see that coming!

    Delightful response 🙂
