Once upon a time in a city by the James, a knightly groom wed a handsome dame.
The fairytale wedding was hardly plain, but life ever after felt slightly the same.
As he mounted his steed, she planted a kiss.
The newlyweds reveled in marital bliss.
She soon was back to the everyday task of fueling her tank with everyday gas.
When she got home from work she gave Harvey a walk.
Then stopped by the store — it was yogurt she sought.
Reunited at last, the young lovers relaxed. In the glow of the TV, they peacefully basked.
