There once was a girl named Rapunzel,
She was beautiful and fair.
She sung to the world and beyond,
To the sky, she would constantly stare.
“My dear, my dear Rapunzel”,
The witch was made very aware,
“If a man shall try to court you,
Then you shall let down your hair!”
“But mother”, protested Rapunzel,
“I’ve no use for a silly man!
I have you and that is enough!”
“Ah young Rapunzel, listen to my plan…”
Rapunzel listened and was delighted,
Boredom would be done away!
Mother was definitely clever!
She could use a man who would stay!
One day, he came a-riding,
A prince with a long blonde mane,
Drawn in by Rapunzel’s singing voice,
He rode right through the rain.
“Rapunzel, Rapunzel! Let down your hair!”
He climbed up with much delight,
But when he was through the window sill,
His smile turned into fright.
Everywhere laid the bodies,
Of other noble men,
“This is the only way to make them stay,
Shall you be joining them?”
