...and they lived happily ever after. Smith & Lady: poets, artists, photographers & adventurers.
Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,
frenetic, love-laden song, "Walking On Thin Ice." ( play song )

little red riding dessert soon after


You say “that’s just a fairy tale,
life’s not like that”
but I don’t think you’re reading right,
because they’re regular P.H.D.s of life design;
they’ll teach you to tell the troll
“don’t eat me, eat my brother, he’s bigger,”
that poor fathers sell young daughters
to beasts for sleepovers,
if you’re hungry there’s always
a granny in the woodpile
with little red riding dessert soon after,
or tired weary human and lame
a little bear burglary’s okay,
and mutilating mice is fine,
but remember a frog asking for a kiss
is worth more as a freak than a Prince,
and what exactly is Ms. White doing
with Sneaky Sleazy and the seven’s semen?
so yeah, soap operas and fairy tales,
fairy tales and soap operas,
just the thing to set kids right
let them know knives are for backs
stuff is for steal
and truth is to lie for
nothing down
except the duck, the goose, the gander
