Don’t Save the Princess

Do not rescue the princess.

Her doors lock from within

and her hands are not bound,

linked there beneath her chin.

 

Do not rescue the princess.

her hands not bound, but clasped,

not gagged, but keeping secrets,

For help she has not asked.

 

Do not rescue the princess,

By her the dragon has been tamed.

She runs the tower steps for fun,

And needs not be renamed.

 

Do not rescue the princess,

She’s learned the forests’ paths,

And can draw you a map,

She needn’t watch her step,

For she sets the traps.
