NAPOWRIMO 20: Fairy Tale, 2020

My poem today is based on this prompt from Wild Violet: NAPOWRIMO 2020 - Prompt 20.

Fairy Tale, 2020

This tale has a happy ending.
For 40 days and 40 nights, the princess
imprisoned herself in a tower,
Outside, a rain of locusts
and frogs, wearing masks.
Best to wait them out. I
am the princess. The keys
are by the front door,
but I'm waiting to see
where this story goes.
