I guess being a Princess
wasn’t all it cracked up to be…

I thought it would always be
champagne out of glass slippers,
but Prince Charming...really wasn’t.

Turns out that Papa King
held the purse-strings tightly
for a reason.

When Charming took the throne,
the treasury took a powder.

The Kingdom now has a parliament,
and being a figure-head pays squat.

So now we have a mortgage
on a thirteen-bedroom castle,
and that ain’t cheap.

The twins need braces,
and the baby has the croup.
Charming looks for solace in glass bottles.

Got to get back to it now…
Housekeeping for tips at the
local “No-Tell Motel.”

At least all that working for my Stepmom
is paying off at the new job.

Dear Poeter, The very title of the poem 'Cinderella Works for Tips' made me want to read it first and get the idea of what magic you are going to do if you write. The origins of this poem make us realize the difference that realities and fantasies make between real life and dream life. Finally, It is very difficult to live as a mere human being on a rich earth. Write More Congratulations
