How many lightbulbs does it take to change a princess? by Rachael Clyne

How many lightbulbs does it take to change a princess?

None, they just shine wherever they go.
Add one wicked witch to blow her fuse
one loyal prince to rekindle her flame
one fairy godmother to remind her
she doesn’t need changing
and one feminist to tell her to grow up
and claim her sovereignty.
