Happily Never

A giant dazed by a smell of blood, snores and blows golden pennies. Precious gems rain from the sky, Mother Goose generous with supply. Curious boy with leisure and treasure, wiggles down the slender trunk to appease a grumpy dame. Self-playing harp turns treasure into displeasure vying for blood.

Happy never, pair
returns jinxed precious metals
smelting revolting

Do leave a trace!
