No one said that Cinderella
had to be a lady,
it may be that she was,
but because it’s a fairy tale
we are left to wonder.
I wondered for a long time how long time could be,
the answer didn’t come to me
all I got was a potbelly and whiskers.
That’s the chance we take when we take the chance to make a complete fool of ourselves.
I took a chance once, but they caught me and charged me,
the judge gave me time and I still didn’t know how long time could be,
repeating myself now
and that’s how it goes.
