Title: Fairy Finances

Queen Mab went into overdraft
She’d run out of resources,
she’d been off to the races
and bet on sluggish horses.
She poured herself a hefty dram
then into town she flew
to visit banker, Penny Royal,
and see what she could do.
Penny Royal sipped chamomile
while looking quite impassive
and then she pointed out to Mab
“Your overdraft is massive!”
“Stop gambling in casinos
and placing dubious bets
try to think of other ways
of settling your debts”
Fairy Thyme could not oblige
she didn’t own a mint.
while fairy Coriander
confessed she too was skint.
Geranium and Lavender
along with Rosemary
couldn’t help her either,
they’d had a spending spree.
Chervil, Dill and Basil
,Borage, Chives and Rue
said they’d love to fund her
but they were hard up too.
Back at home in Dingly Dell
Queen Mab was feeling vexed,
if she could not pay off her debts
what would befall her next?
Titania heard of Queen Mab`s plight
and from her wishing well
she took some shiny silver coins
to send to Dingly Dell.
Oberon took the money round
to Mab, there in her grotto,
she bought them both some moonshine
and spent the rest on Lotto.
Luck was on Mab`s side that night.
anticipation manic
her Lotto numbers tallied,
her winnings were titanic.
Debts were paid and solvency
gave rise to much elation
and all the woodland fairies
joined in the celebrations.
Titania’s health was toasted
as she stood there alone
for Oberon was legless
and fast asleep at home..
No more tips from Penny Royal
Good Fortune’s turned the tables
and Penny’s now receiving tips
Direct from Mab’s new stables.
