A princess steps off her throne in a moment of stillness
Off she goes into the bewilderness
She recognises this pathway through people’s voices
but the atmosphere is different, so are the noises
There are loud bangs and the ground does shudder
Maybe they’re happy to see Princess and her mother
It’s frightening but right now doesn’t seem so scary
It looks a bit different today, everyone’s a bit teary
“Let’s go play mother, look what we have
Someone’s left something there on our land!
Look a huge crayon! Or is it a spaceship!
Let’s take a ride mum before the other kids take it!”
And the mother looks on as the Princess jumps on
Wraps her legs over the unexploded bomb
If off it had gone, Princess would not be here
But I will not change that smile to fear
