They were playing make-believe

But they didn’t get along.

Kerry, the good fairy, said

That  Nate was always wrong

And that he couldn’t be the king.

When he wanted to know why,

She hit him with her magic wand

And gave him a black eye.

He told his friends he got the shiner

Playing ball behind the diner.
