FRACTURED FAIRYTALE! Chanced upon a book one day, Bent, dog-eared, tattered and frayed, Tale found within, read with a grin, This fractured fairy tale, Laughter did not fail...... Cinderella's real story, Not such glory... Ma woke up one fine morn, "Cinders, Cinders!" Ma cried with such scorn. "Cinders, you did what? Cinders, you look such a grot! Cinderella, are you on drugs? What handsome prince gave you hugs? Where is our pumpkin for tea? Where's your pet mice, prithee? Cinderella, Cinderella, Where is this handsome fella? Are you on drugs? Handsome prince gave you hugs? Did you forget the pill? Why, you silly dill!! Cinderella, Cinderella, Listen to me, I'm your mother, Not some fairy godmother! What fairy godmother??? Cinderella, Cinderella. What did you do with that handsome fella?" Yes, that was the fractured fairytale, Indeed, laughter did not fail.
