Cinderella’s stepmother fancied herself a scepter She never loved poor Cinderella or strove to protect her Instead she chided, spurnéd, and decided to reject her.
So Cinderella scrubbed the hearth and laved the kitchen floor Her jovial stepsisters’ antics made her wish for more Until one day she said, “Enough! This living is a bore.”
Indeed this was a verity; fairy godmother said, “I augur life will change anon. Now Cindy, go to bed.” But Cindy, with malevolence, formed other plans instead.
Alas, no handsome prince arrived to woo her as his bride So Cinderella, all alone, was disposed to decide She’d improve life by ending one- resort to parricide!
