Moody Dwarf Blues

The girl should have her head examined
Talking to animals and cavorting with dwarfs
Seven men to make it worse
Maybe Doc can help
And what’s with the crazy old bat
Gazing in the mirror and chanting like that
Hoping to turn truth into fair lies
I wish the two of them would go back to their castle
Eat an apple and leave us to our exercise
Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho, Grab an ax and touch your toes
But my crew, whew, do they have it bad for Princess
All happy and dopey trying to impress
Sleezy even changed his name
Not me, no sir
I don’t care if she smells nice, if her laughter fills the air
I don’t care about that silky red ribbon in her hair
Or that she keeps the cottage and packs daily lunch
She’s much too much for this little bunch
All kisses and hugs for huntsmen and prince friends
Sleepy on Bashful’s shoulders pretends to be them
So she had a rough patch, the death sleep and all
Even curmudgeonly old me felt pretty bad for the gal
But just as you bet, love’s first kiss woke her up
By Prince Charming of course
So happily ever after was never in the cards
For one of us dwarfs

It’s Day 21 of the NaPoWriMo Challenge. Today’s challenge to write a poem in the voice of minor character from a fairy tale or myth. Instead of writing from the point of view of Cinderella, write from the point of view of the mouse who got turned into a coachman.
