Cinderella

citygirl
Once upon a time
In a city’s grime
 
There lived a girl
Newly formed pearl
 
She worked her way
Every single day
 
Among shysters and crooks
All with their hooks
 
Lured by tricksters and thieves
For years of blinding eves
 
No end in sight
Her long and arduous plight
 
Fallen on empty hopes and dreams
Cinderella ran out of steam
 
But then one day
Amidst the fray
 
A fine young prince
Presented a quince
 
Love bloomed like a rose
And then he proposed
 
Made her his queen
Two hearts evergreen
 
There was bliss thereafter
And they lived happily ever after
