No Princesses Here (A Poem)

No Princesses copy

No Princesses Here

When Cindy grows up, she will be a dinosaur

A T-Rex, as a matter of fact

And sweet little Molly wants to be a fierce shark

A great white, to be exact

Then there is Jesse, the smallest of all

Who will lead a lion attack

And if you tell these girls they should be princesses

You might wish to take those words back

Otherwise…

Cindy will roar with tremendous strength

And ask “Are you trying to bore us?

Why would I be some frilly princess

When I can be a Tyrannosaurus?”

Then Molly will flash her sharp-toothed smile

And say, “I resent that remark.

Why would I be some helpless princess

When I am queen of the sharks?”

And if Cindy’s roar and Molly’s bite

Don’t make you take back what you’ve said

Then sweet Jesse, the greatest lion who lived

Will pounce and bite off your head
