The prompt was “You bought her what…” There was purposely no punctuation so as to leave some freedom of interpretation.
Y0u bought her what she couldn’t buy;
sweets and candies, true delights,
a four-post bed with sheets so white,
a pony that she’d love to ride,
a gown to dance in through the night,
a house upon the riverside,
a swimming pool with a bright blue slide,
a beach to stroll and watch the tide,
a forest where the faeries hide,
and in their secret vales reside,
a magic palace in the sky,
fantastical on clouds up high.
You bought her things to satisfy,
Or so you tried to justify,
But all that really qualified
was a friend in whom she could confide.
I’m going to have to continue doing these. This was fun!
