A Rhyme Of Cinderella

Cinderella with all her beauty
Was confined to a dirty kitchen
Ugly sisters said; prince please
marry me
But lost their heads
in the heat.
And there comes Cinderella
Cladded in a golden gown
Carts and horses with a
Handsome clown.
Fair prince, yes prince charming
Can you please take me dancing
It's late, fairy mother will be calling.
Have I wondered to a world
of imagination
Cinderella, who did create this fiction
To get our children to such addiction
Yes children, let's call it a friction.
They wish to get you enticed
Take you on a stride
O' what a life
Cinderella heaved a sigh
Tomorrow, prince charming
Will buy me a ride.
Now she goes crashing off our book
As she flung away her silver shoe
Yes one is left on her dirty foot
Fairy mother is waiting by the loo
They said two ugly sisters
Are a pile of poo
Let us now discontinue
Lest we dent our book.
Yet that did not end the story
Cinderella, does she have a place
in history
As children get more addicted to TV

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
