There was once a young girl

who wore not but a frown

told again and again

to turn it upside down.


So one day she did it

using stitches and pins

she twisted her frown

til it looked like a grin.


She asked if they were happy

or if they thought it looked bad

if the liked what they saw

or if she'd overshot just a tad. 


But no one would answer

indeed, they were scared

of her freakish mouth twitching 

as she talked and they stared. 


She covered her face as she wept

knowing her looks were vile

her smile wanting to frown

but frown wanting to smile.


So with no one to see

and no one to show

she let her skin free

let her ugly pout grow.


She had started to walk

trying to get lost

when a black cat came and kissed her 

as if she wasn't a lost cause.


Then an odd thing happened

a smile strange as when knit! 

It would never fit in

But she didn't mind it one bit.

HONK.

HONK HONK HOOOOOOOOONK.

What a strange girl, the passerby thought. Are those horns on her feet? No wait, the horns are her feet! And a, a trumpet neck? Why, the poor girl's...

Shame. It was all he could feel. It wasn't right for him to keep her here when she could go anywhere. He was stuck, she was not. But still, day after day, he couldn't work up the...
