Minnie's stalking Meghan Markle
Donald Duck's schizophrenic
Frenzied, fiery, fricking frenetic
Snow White's on the special cola
Elsa's not of sound mind.
Such a bind.
Winnie The Pooh's having a wobble
Cinderella's got the Collywobbles
Ariel's at breaking point,
Why-hard to pinpoint.
Princess Jasmine feels just fine
Or so you'd think, from looking online.
Olaf's OCD is off the chart
Channeling pain into snowy art.
Rapunzel's on a cocktail of drugs
When she all she needs is a massive hug.
Pluto's on Prozac
So watch your back.
Goofy's got PTSD
Gaston's got the blues
Cinderella's lost her sparkly shoes
Anna's anorexia -what's it to you?
Sugarcoated hopes and dreams
Cute fluffy kittens
And motivational memes
It's time make-believe died.
When Disney is dead inside.
