Poisonous Demise

Poisonous demise
Wicked stepmother’s revenge
Sweet crimson apple

Snow White’s collapse
Alarmed the dwarfs and kingdom
Prince Charming’s lost love

Sweet kiss on her lips
Magic moment exchanged
Fairy tale ending

    Poor snow white. At least she went in an exciting way. Not many will have an experience like hers. A nice write. 🙂

    Mrs. Jim is an LSU tiger and fan. I pull for them except when they play Nebraska which was a long time ago.

    My dear, I started out here with great seriousness … then felt wretched and as though I were “bad” when I reached the end and laughed out loud. That is expressing my joy ;). Happy mother’s day to you!
