Mum stepped on the Lego
scattered pieces everywhere,
that majestic princess castle
was definitely in need of repair.
She blamed the careless slippers
too big for her feet she said,
she’d tried to miss the jigsaw puzzle,
but landed on the castle instead.
Too much mess was lying around
for Mum to duck and dive,
she hadn’t meant to break anything,
but her luck did not survive.
She picked up all the pieces
built that stunning castle once more,
but only when she’d finished
did she notice something on the floor.
A quivering pretty princess
shaking from head to toe,
wondering what had happened
to her castle of long ago.
She tried to run and hide
in her castle like before,
but silly Mum had only forgotten
to make a swinging door.
Now the princess was really stuck
with nowhere left to go,
she sat and stared right up at Mum
and quietly squeaked hello.
Mum froze on the spot
couldn’t believe what she saw,
I didn’t mean to frighten you,
but what are you doing on my floor?
The princess told her story
how she’d lived in her house for years,
in pencil cases and tiny cars
anything really that appears.
Mum thought for a moment
then gave some exciting news,
she could stay in their house for evermore,
she hoped she wouldn’t refuse.
The family always wanted a pet
someone to look after and feed,
a pretty tiny real princess
was definitely fun guaranteed.
And so it was, the princess stayed,
living and sharing the fun,
visitors flocked to see the girl,
sharing stories to everyone.
The children forgave Mum and her slippers
enjoyed the fun and laughter,
and Mum decided in all her years
this was the best happy ever after.
