Love’s True Kiss
Long awaited, a peck from the belle of the ball did nothing. The boar-man sighed abandoned.
The boar-maid cleaning up sheds a tear. Pressing snouts, they kiss.

“Not alone. I stand with you.”
He readied his sword. “My friend—”
“And my kingdom stands with me!”
The hills howled.

“They installed one backwards to fit!”
“I’m walkin’ in circles here!!”
