A popular romance – Kevin Ireland

A popular romance – Kevin Ireland

will you have me?
groaned the frog
my squashy love
is all agog

do you care?
complained the crab
a true heart serves
this horny scab

the prince exclaimed
if you agree
your love could change
the brute in me

they’re all the same
the princess said
it’s like a bestiary
in my bed
