Poem of the Day April 21

Cinderella's Double Life

from Mirror, Mirror: A Book of Reversible Verse by Marilyn Singer

Isn't life unfair?
Stuck in a corner;
while they're waiting for a chance
with the prince,
dancing waltz after waltz
at the ball,
I'll be shining
these shoes
till the clock stickes midnight.

**********************************************

Til the clock strikes midnight,
these shoes!
I'll be shining
at the ball,
dancing waltz after waltz
with the prince
while they're waiting for a chance,
stuck in a corner.
Isn't life unfair?
