Driftwood: a Fairy Tale - Cursive

He swam steadily for most of the day. Suddenly he found
himself approaching an enormous huge floating cavern.
Could it be an island? Pinocchio looked closed and he
saw two hige rows of sharp, yellow teeth and he realized
his mistake.
so he would sulk and drink and mope
and cross his arms and hope to die
and then a fairy came one night
to bring this sorry boy to life
she pulled some strings, spilled him about
that boy jumped up and began to shout,
my arms my legs my heart my face
they are alive
and she would cry, liar liar
what have i done
you're no lover and i'm no figher
the story goes on
so he would buy her things kiss her hair
to show he was for real
and she would take those gifts and kisses
though just stringing him along
she knew about those wooden boys
they take empty love to fill the void
pinocchio, oh boy, how your nose has grown
so he would cry, liar liar
i'll prove it to you
but then it grew
he had grown tired of her so it was true
he left her apartment
and he walked all night long
till he was stopped by the shore of the ocean
but still he walked on
among the whales and waves
and screamed liar liar
and his wooden body floated away
he just drifted away
and now i wonder how i was made
my arms my legs my heart my face
my name is driftwood
