The Small Prince’s Simple Pleasures

the small prince was instructed
to eat part of an apple,
and leave the remainder
in his pocket
for after.

“After who?”
After witches invaded the beaches,
squashing the snails,
who were guarding the coastlines,

after the hostile arrest of an
Andalusian poet,
after the small prince laughed
because his pennies were worthless

and the prince sat on a shell;
“which Hell is worthwhile?”

The prince sighed,

and produced a liquorice pipe.
