HAPPINESS IN A BOX - A Modern Day Fairy Tale

When the shipment came

She was overjoyed

She was sure the box

Contained her redemption

She hooked the contents

To a monitor and board

And holding tightly

She began to surf

She knew that somewhere

Inside the box

Were answers to every question

Including the biggest one of all

("Where's my Prince Charming?")

But, alas, there were only answers

To questions she did not ask

And many, many men

But no princes among them
