Sweep and sew and cook and clean,
Smile when Esmeralda’s mean.
Try not to make your Stepmom mad.
All this time where was your Dad?
It’s my lame attempt at grade school poetry but didn’t you always wonder why Cinderella’s Dad never showed up to protect her from her evil stepmother and those sloth-like stepsisters? Her patience was rewarded. When the last glass shoe dropped she ended up with a prince, a palace, and a happy ending. All she had to do was work like a slave and believe in magic.
