The Poetry of
Jack Scott

I Never Said I Was a Prince

Kiss me, I’m a frog.
You want a prince? Kiss me.
I want a princess, I’ll kiss you back.
Your prince has
every feeling you have,
and I’ve the same as he, and thee.
He has no more to offer
than you can get from me,
but I’m a frog until you kiss me.
You want a prince ,
and clearly I’m a frog,
so kiss me.
And, yes, I feel the cold, the heat
as much as you, your dog and prince.
I want you
and I’m sure your dog will like me
and nevermind your prince.
