literary propaganda… Toni L.A. Cross

is peter pan a coward
running from real life
or does he have good reason
to not make wendy his wife?

is the mad hatter truly mad
trying to escape reality
or has he more sense than most
without conventional morality?

is wendy brave and right
to return to all that calls
or is she wrongly obeying fate
destined to imprisonment in rigid walls?

is ariel really a heroine
for a little child to admire
or is she a rebellious brat
embodying our sinful desire?

is this the stuff of bedtime tales
to send children off to dreamland
or is it sugar-coated propaganda
indoctrination mixed with sleepy-sand?

About goatgirlbookworm

My name is Toni Cross, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.
