THE WATER BASIN, by                    
First Line: There was a king and he had three daughters
Last Line: "if the basin had been stronger, / my story would've been longer"

There was a King and he had three daughters,
And they all lived in a basin of water;
The basin bended,
My story's ended.
If the basin had been stronger
My story would have been longer.
