Fractured Fairy Stories

Cinderella’s Life after the Wedding

That is where you saw me last

At the wedding feast

Before the happily ever after


Well let me tell you

If you thought my life was miserable

With the evil stepmother

And the ugly stepsisters

Sitting amongst the cinders


Nothing has prepared me

For life with the prince

Running to and fro

Picking up this and that

Washing and scrubbing

Cooking and cleaning

Oh woe the day that I

Lost that damn slipper

Running from the prince
