Song for Ralph Nader
From the "Kids
say the darndest things" files:
by Robin Supak
I read Rumpelstiltskin
to my 5-year-old son Spencer. It went something like this...
So the miller's daughter was painted into an impossible
corner by her really bad father. She dies unless she delivers the gold by dawn.
The little dude shows up and wants to know what she has to offer if he spins for
her. "I will give you my necklace," she replies.
The next night she's in the same bind only bigger.
This time, when he asks what she will give him for his help, she says, "I will
give you my ring." Done deal.
Naturally, the greedy king ups the ante. When she
delivers on this last load, she can be queen. Or die.
This time Rumpelstiltskin springs his trap. "I
have nothing left to offer," she sobs, and he starts into the
"Wait!" interrupts Spencer." She's still
got a dress! Give him your dress!"
says, "Making a mocracy..."
