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.
