Unicorns are real
Our six-woman band, The Unicornians, began as an excuse to wear glittery unicorn horns
and make songs for every occasion.
It was great fun until one (not saying who)
believed we weren’t taking ourselves seriously.
She wasn’t wrong,
but we we weren’t about to give up the disco ball prance-and-play.
Serious One chose not to participate,
so we sent her off with a sweet ukulele concert and rainbow confetti toss.
We suggested she keep her unicorn horn,
because we secretly hoped she might still prance in private.
