Fireflies and Fairies

by CJ Maleney   Sep 23, 2017

I have never seen a fairy
But my daughter insists that they exist
I have never seen a firefly
Are these too just a myth

I have never seen a leprechaun
With his magic pot of gold
But when I talk to Irish men
They are real is what I'm told

I have never seen a yeti
But there are footprints in the snow
Is this just someone playing tricks
I guess I will never know.

Some say they've not seen a unicorn
free or fixed with chain and shackle
But I'm telling you that they exist
Because the b@£t@£d broke my ankle

I dived on an inflatable one while on holiday, it flipped and I cracked my ankle off the side of the pool. ;-) bloody unicorns, ya just can't trust em

      Thanks Meena.

      A minor wound and more a chipped bone than a break, slowed me down a little but didn't hold me back or spoil the holiday
