once upon a time…

only once?

she asked

yes once was enough & there is hope it will not be repeated over

the evil of it all

which time?

i am sure you remember…

prayers are spoken each hour

the bell rings

once upon a time..

only once?

she asked

no, it happens all the time when folk are kind all the time

it comes in layers like a trifle pudding

yet more important than a mere dessert

prayers were spoken each hour

the bell rang

once upon a time
