CINDERELLA 21ST CENTURY



I could sit and cry
about step-mom misfortune
or heave long sighs
for step-sisters importune

but sitting by the cinders
alone every eve
I decided with
Fairy good luck
My fortune
I’ll weave.

So mice-eaten books
became horses for my dreams
and a pumpkin-pie recipe
my sustenance means

One day I sold a pie
In a palace like bakery
But step-mom misfortune
Couldn’t shy from her treachery


She made me forget
To carry a mark of reference
Now how would prince fortune
Mark his preference

But luck shined brightly
As the prince was persistent
No one but only me
He was quite insistent!

The slipper shaped pie mould,
I had hurriedly left back
The prince knew
Only I had a pair and
He followed that track

From house to house they searched
And finally found me
Today with my prince I live
And we run the Palace bakery!
