"Faeries" by Diana L Crawford

Faeries that you know today
appear to be so spritely gay;
yet stories from the past, you see,
describe them all quite differently.
The faeries’ magic is so old;
their gift of wishes can be sold,
and you will have a price to pay - 
be careful of the words you say.
For they will hold you to your word;
your mental state could be fractured.
Or they could cast a nasty spell
and leave you in a living hell.
So carry iron in your sack
and always strive to watch your back.
As by mistake you might just find,
the faeries’ wrath if you are blind.


Author Notes
Fairy, also spelled faerie or faery, a mythical being of folklore and romance usually having magic powers and dwelling on earth in close relationship with humans. In a lot of modern stories, iron is fairies' kryptonite. Their silver bullet. All the hero has to do is whip out a cast-iron skillet, and evil sprites cower. It is often explained as iron having natural anti-magic qualities.
