The Fairy Tale

We grow up believing it should be our goal.

Finding a partner will make us whole.

We must catch them before it’s too late.

We’ll be old and unable to procreate.

Some grab their mates early.

They’re usually bored by thirty.

Others wait and run out of time.

They settle for a bag of slime.

The lucky ones marry well.

They’re content with the fairy tale.
