Red Prince

Here is a Red Prince
With flaming hair and flaming lips
Elegant tango footsteps and
Nimble logician mind—
He wants to be good, feel good, do good

And the Good Fairy came and
Tapped the bravado with a magic wand:
With paupers shoes and
Paupers hair and with
Paupers food, the dandy was found
Beneath an apple tree.

What is this disrespect, this disgrace
Proclaims the disgruntled,
I am a man of the world.

Indeed,
Says she,
Dis is the world.
