THE STRANGE PALACE
The family who lived in the palace was weird
but that is because their memory was seared.
They were also a strange lot –
the family that time forgot.
The king was very jolly
born around the time of Hi Ho and Holly.
He loved his wife
although she caused him strife.
She had a constant laugh like a cackle,
so into her mouth he poured some spackle.
The king’s daughter was named Heather
she was petite and light as a feather.
But her face was scary
so she would never marry.
Herbert was the king’s son
who refused to be outdone.
He tied up his nanny
and put her out on her fanny.
(His timing was uncanny.)
Oh yes, there was a court jester
who let his anger fester.
He grabbed his good mead
and jumped on his steed.
Not remembering his past
in this loony bin he would not last.
The cook served the royalty
but they sure knew about spoility.
He couldn’t stand them anymore
so fed them a boar
drizzled with poison right down to the core.
So, you may ask, why did the palace
contain so much malice?
They finally figured out
and really, without a doubt,
that they really were not royalty.
Their time on vacation
was quite a narration
as their minds they lost
and there, their memories were tossed.
