Snow White choked on poisoned apples,

Hansel and Gretel were never found.

Cinderella lost her slipper,

And the Little Mermaid drowned.

Now,Heaven is just a six-letter word,

And God is just a dream,

But dreams mean nothing anymore,

And men are just machines.

But what ever happened to the Philosophers

And Poets

Who searched their souls for the meaning of life?

Or Wisemen and Prophets who tried to find

The answers written in the sky?

And what ever happened to the Hippies of the 60's

Who sang their songs of love and peace;

And raised their hands and chained them together,

To stand up for something that they believed?

But my oblivion has been shattered

Because I know I can never see this,

So I'll vie and die for a perfect world,

As the Sleeping Beauty awaits her kiss.
