The Gucci Glass Slipper

by Alyssa D. Ross

Cindy begged her wicked stepmom
for the newest trend most “in”:
sparkling, pointed heels as high as sin.
Hard to wear, she would admit,
but such a fashionable fit!

Stepmom Sarah would not spare a cent.
She knew that Gucci glass is not meant
For a real girl. She also knew, as most mothers do,
that happiness wears suffering,
not some silly shoe.
