the princess, the frog

This is a foward that I got the other day. An old fairy tale re-visited. Enjoy :)

Once upon a time
>>>>~~~~~~~~>>>>
in a land far away,
> >> > ~~~~~~~~> >> >
a beautiful, independent,
> >> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
self-assured princess
> >~~~~~~~~> >
happened upon a frog as she sat
> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
contemplating ecological issues
> >> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
on the shores of an unpolluted pond
> >> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
in a verdant meadow near her castle.
> >> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
The frog hopped into the princess' lap
> >> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
and said: " Elegant Lady,
> >> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
I was once a handsome prince,
> >> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
until an evil witch cast a spell upon me.
> >> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
One kiss from you, however,
> >> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
and I will turn back
> >> >> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
into the dapper, young prince that I am
> >> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
and then, my sweet, we can marry
> >> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
and set up housekeeping in your castle
> >> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
with my mother,
> >> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
where you can prepare my meals,
> >> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
clean my clothes, bear my children,
> >> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
and forever feel
> >> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
grateful and happy doing so. "
> >> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
That night,
> >> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
as the princess dined sumptuously
> >> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
on lightly sauteed frog legs
> >> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
seasoned in a white wine
> >> >~~~~~~~> >> >
and onion cream sauce,
> >> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
she chuckled and thought to herself:
> >> >~~~~~~~~> >> >
I don't freakin' think so.
