Disney Lies

Disney Lies

A Poem by Tayler
"

Title is pretty self-explanatory.

"

 

Oh, what a travesty,
I grew up dreaming of princes,
Wearing sweeping cloaks and funny hats,
Beautiful faces glazed over with love.
 
I was brought up on love,
Of women wearing sweeping gowns,
Long, gorgeous hair swishing with every movement,
The center of a dark tale.
 
I came to know,
That when a girl is taken but evil,
The prince is too ride in gallantly
And save that day
 
But no prince has come for me,
In fact princes don’t exist
And no one’s going to save me,
I have to save myself.
 
Why, oh why does Disney lie?

Princes do exist. You just might not find one kissing frogs and expecting miracles. Nobility is more than blood. There are men of honor, strength and courage, wisdom, patience and kindness who defend freedom against every tyrant and love against death. They are not the knights of old. The knights of old were, in reality, brutal mercenary soldiers who murdered innocent civilians. But today's hero's are United States soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines and coast guard. They are police officers and firemen who daily risk their lives for our freedom and safety. To me, those guys are real princes. They still ride in gallantly in the face of danger to save the day. I think Disney was selling an idea of a paradigm; a perfect world. Sometimes we need that fantasy as a relief from the brutality of reality. There are no perfect people or perfect worlds. But there are good men and women who deserve our respect and gratitude for all they do. My friend, Suzanne, sent me pictures from Iraq. She wasn't in a gown but in National Guard Camo holding her rifle. I guess Disney does lie but the idea is certainly worth defending. Now Suzanne is back home watching The Little Mermaid with her daughter. I wish all our troops could be. I really liked this poem. Sorry I went chasing rabbits there but my mind and heart is with those who can't be home this Christmas.

:] Best sentiment of the day. Not every poem has to be dark, suicidal and disturbed-this one made my day! Keep it up!
