NaPoWriMo #21: Fairy Tale Fortune Cookies

You will be declared fairest of them all.  Don't get too attached.

Queen and Princess alike will beg you for a favor.  Decline them.

Taking in a snow-white maid will incur considerable trouble.  Reconsider.

For the love of God, DON'T take presents from strangers!

Like this cookie, glass coffins hold wonderful surprises.

You will be forgotten, grow dusty, and shatter.  Sorry, brother.  Fortune was not on your side.

Prompt: Re-write Frank O'Hara's "Lines from a Fortune Cookie."
