Poem 121 - A Fairy Tale

Mom started telling the beautiful tale
"Once a train was running on its rails
When on the track stood a monster, holding the train
It killed some people, gave other's pain

That time appeared a beautiful fairy
She was fighting the monster, in the story
The monster fell, the people were safe now
The fairy, everybody did love

But that was not the end, just the beginning
Because the monster didn't die, evil thing
He was back one day, only for the fairy time
He decided to kill her and do many a crime

Sarcastically he said "Oh! My poor dear
I am sure of me you have no fear"
The fairy grinned, the monster was taken aback
But he got up and gave the fairy a whack

The fairy flew, high up in the air
Moving her wings, her excitement with us she did share
She moved her wand and the monster was dead
In one corner was his body, one corner his head."

That is how the story did end
Oh! In the middle there was such a bend
Oh! How thrilling the tale was, right?
And I bet you could see the monster and fairy fight
-Gaurang Rao
