Fable or No Fable
a poem by Joyce Johnson


I have some stories from my childhood, so very long ago.
Which is legend, fairy tale or real, is very hard to know.

Did I not see Paul and his blue ox plowing up the prairie?
Were not Romulus and Remus suckled by a wolf so hairy?

I believed everything I saw in print when I was only nine
And then to find they are not true has really messed my mind.

Please don’t tell me that Robin Hood was not a real live hero.
If all his Merry Men are myths, then I am batting zero.

King Arthur and the round table and Sir Gallahad the knight
Were real to me as you are, to deny that isn't right.

The legend of Sleepy Hollow, near frightened me to death.
The headless rider and galloping horse truly made me lose my breath.

Some folks claim they have seen Bigfoot, or the monster from Loch Ness.
Whose talking straight, whose telling lies, is anybody’s guess.

I guess I’ll choose what to believe and I’ll do that because
There are some folks who try to say… “There is no Santa Claus”.
