A Cautionary Tale for Writers of Children’s Stories
Tickle a nascent rebellious streak with magic or confusion,
with stories about running away, joining the circus,
flying an airplane, stealing a car…
But remember to caution;
all choices have consequences.
Fail to ensure your characters always
come back home, before bedtime,
and you may live to write another tale.
