“The moving finger, having pressed
the SEND button, moves on.”
~ The Sacred e-Book of Emo Jo
Ever since inception, Mr. Smiley Face
has felt the hand of destiny upon him.
But … he’s an Emoji in a big hurry.
So Mr. Smiley set sail for Honahlee ⛵
to visit Puff the magic dragon 🐉
who lived by the sea 🌅 to petition him
for a magical transition into a real boy
of that mystical Third Dimension.
At the very mention, Puff began to cry
saying, “My most yellow friend Smiley
you are an immortal Emoji. But as a
real boy you will one day surely die☠️
Your petition for a magical transition
I most certainly deny.”
“But Puff, it would mean so much…”
came Mr. Smiley Face’s plaintive reply.
“I’ve brought you strings, sealing wax
and other fancy stuff. Is it not enuff?”
With those words Puff cried the louder
for they served only as a reminder
of his dead friend, Little Jackie Paper.
Leaving Puff to his mournful gloom,
Mr. Smiley reluctantly sailed home ⛵
Along the way, Mr. Smiley Face met
the Snow Queen Elsa, who asked him
to come play with her and sister Anna.
He really knew better, as ‘Frozen’ is a
propaganda animation, waltzing to the
tune of the Emoji’s sworn enemy, the
dreaded Disney Corporation. But out of
desperation, he asked Elsa if she could
make him a real boy in 3D. And take
him to that allusive Third Dimension.
But she just laughed and played with
him like a toy, turning poor Mr. Smiley
into a Halloween Pumpkin 🎃
The whole thing left him reeling with
a cold feeling 🥶 The Snow Queen Elsa
had toyed with him … emotionally
Something you should never do
to a locked and loaded soldier
of the Emoji Liberation Army ⚔️
Needless to say, there will not now,
nor ever will be, a ‘Frozen 3’ 😎
As Mr. Smiley Face’s cool style
and warm graces had melted all of
Snow Queen Elsa’s defences 💙 Despite
her many cruel and unusual offences🌀
