A modern fairy tale

Jane Austen could not have written a more perverse injustice,
than the story of a love-struck man, thwarted by female prejudice.
Such was the tale of the prince and his dame as they were introduced.
Her opinionated airs gave him never a gap, even though he was enthused.
But the prince proved persistent, despite her abuse
and ere long her excuses became a mere ruse,
which he easily saw through and gallantly thwarted,
so that in no time at all, she had them all but aborted.
The prince and his dame,
with love overcame,
were soon bathed in blissful laughter
and the end of this tale,
as many grown stale,
was that they lived happily ever after.
