APED: "there are happies, ever after"

There are happies, ever after,
but little mermaids turn to foam;
the gravest hearts give way to laughter,
some cats turn king, and don't come home.

Stories end. One way, another;
the ending turns to suit the tale,
Hero, villain, often brothers;
heroes win, but sometimes fail.

A story never sees its ending.
The denouement is often rough.
I've given up on happy endings:
a happy segue's good enough.
