The Death of Beauty and Magick

based upon Beauty by Robin McKinley

Beauty is dying.
Her prince never came
And the magic spell fell away long ago.
Now she is a pale, withered crone and
Her tears are filling up the oceans,
Causing floods and great devastations.
She is being torn apart by those
Who do not care,
Or trust,
Or believe in magic.
The lovers are a dying breed
Being replaced by those
Who have become accustomed to horror,
Turning their faces away from nature.
