Dear Ugly Sisters

Bread has been baked, veggies are chopped,

salt in the pan – kitchen’s been mopped,


cleaned up the bathroom, cleaned up the sink,

washed all your socks – still really stink,


ironed the laundry, folded the sheets,

serviced the car – here’s the receipt,


dog for a walk, cat to the vet,

married a wonderful prince that I met.


Leaving tonight, so good luck with the chores,

I’m dropping my apron and keys by the door.
