This is a Sherman/Peabody story. Did you know?

Actually I was wrong. It's a "Fractured Fairy Tale" from the same series. Was it Rocky and his friends. Anyway your moral is the same.

I heard a version of it on the way to work, while car-pooling in the early 60's. (from a co-worker)
Naturally, I only remembered the concept, and I'm surprised if there is much similarity between my text and the original written version. I never knew of the written version, but I assumed that it had been in print somewhere.
I think that part of my poem "Kiss" came from something that I heard a fragment of at some time. I know I never read it, but I researched the net carefully, and couldn't find a trace. I never knew when or from where it it came, but the line next to the last, "what matter all these things" is from something I heard somewhere, or I dreamed it.
