Snorting beauty

Sleeping Beauty DreamsShe was high for five years

after the seven dealers

paid her a visit


She talked manically

when he tried to kiss her

tongue in cheek


Her nose bled

when he pulled her

from the glass casket


She laughed hysterically

when he asked her

to marry him


When the buzz wore off

she had a headache

and went to sleep



Who needs a prince

when she already has

a white horse?


(#NaPoWriMo day 8 asked to rewrite a famous poem with your own take on it. I ended up rewriting a fairytale.)

    This is terrific – it reminds me of the song Sonne by Rammstein and the video that they shot for it. Brilliant poem and twist on the fairytale Angela.

      What a great excuse to brush up on my Rammstein, I’ll look that video up tonight. Thanks for the compliment! I’m tempted to add “du riechst so gut” but that probably wouldn’t be a compliment 😉

        I will definitely take that as a compliment Angela, as I do think that I smell good 🙂 – that is also another one of my favourite songs of theirs, that and “Los” – the wordplay of “Los” is simply terrific and the tune is catchy as hell!

    This is brilliant! Wish I had had the imagination to do something like this! Oh, that’s inspiration for the future! *smile*
