Ambitious Suitor

Easily confused
As the hero
Marching up to the door
Dragging his spoils from war
Asking for his reward
Barter with flesh
And his prize is a princess
Along with a gold crown
Add her to the collection
A trophy in a gilded cage
Crying, crying for help
She only wants to dance and laugh
Chase after the horizon with her sisters
No, she is married
A trophy he displays to all his friends
Ignoring her tears
For the only dancing she does now
Is cheap parlor tricks for his friends
How easy it is
To mistake the villain as the hero
Especially when he can spin a good tale
And deliver a prize winning smile
