Fraud, A Poem

The whispered promise of life-long bliss,
The gold-crowned frog, the stolen kiss,
The princess heart so love-struck bleeds
The Shining Knight, the heroic deeds

So read, so told to young mind callow
Seeding dreams in young mind fallow
To reap, to pluck the fruited verse
Harvesting the crops of a fruited curse

The damage done by inculcasion
The gilded view, the expectation
The crushing truth of realization
To crash, to fall with timely nod
Bursting asunder the life-long fraud
