Damsels in Distress
You know those Damsels in Distress?
The ones who are more annoying than the rest?
"Save me from this wicked witch!"
What a snitch!
"This dragons going to eat me!"
The next girl to the scene gets a gown for free!
It's pretty and pink and has fine white lace!
The girl who had it didn't carry mace.
And why are they always talking about a knight in shining armor?
Who's to say he's not a farmer?
So next time you see a Damsel in Distress,
Walk up and say, "I prefer a dragon with flaming breath."
