Cinderella New

Cinderella New

Well hello all my name is Cinderella and it’s true,
I do a lot of work for my mother and sister that’s just old news,
I’m getting calluses, cramps and tons of bruises,
Since my family thinks I’m a slave that they can abuse.

Well I think it’s time we have a sit down chat,
‘Cause this Cinderella New is no longer going for all that.
I don’t mean to cause a spat,
But I think some changes are long overdue in this habitat.

So you say there’s no way you’re going to change your tune,
That I’ve lost my mind ‘cause it’s a full moon.
Well let me just let you know,
I’ve got a few changes here that I may now show,
If  my ideas you try to veto.

So gonna put extra starch in when I wash your underwear.
Gonna bake some brownies with Ex-Lax for you so don’t despair.
Gonna put some Crazy glue into that gel you use for your hair.
Gonna put some cayenne pepper in the stew just on a dare.
Gonna find some  bedbugs to place in your sheets so you’d best take care.

Well that’s really all I have to say,
I think it’s time I have my way.
So don’t worry sisters and mom, you’ll be just fine,
Just don’t get me mad next time,
When you’re chicken soup tastes like turpentine.

    I am applauding and cheering for the New Cinderella, the assertive Cinderella.If you have not read the children's book "Paper Bag Princess," please do. You will love it. Great ideas, and fine rhyming, my friend. Welcome to Poetry Soup Michael.
