THE BRAVE LITTLE TAILOR

according to Grimm

Greetings,
said the Unicorn to the Tailor,
greetings on this fine day

But, said the Tailor,
don’t you know there is no
such thing as a unicorn

Oh I am, she cried,
don’t you see that I am

Fair as the morning air
Bright as the morning light
Soft as the mourning dove
Fleeting as morning love…

The Tailor alas
saw no future in poetry
so he chopped off her ivory rod
rode her home for his hobby horse
and married his ugly
but very rich princess

Unicorns since that day
travel in disguise
