And no unfitting adulation!
No time to waste
Haste, round up vital parts
Give this show a healthy start
Magazines of divas, queens
Princess dress all stuffed with stress
Chase fairytale, happy ending
Wrought with wreck from the beginning
And now, the gilding!
Such theatrics will suffice.
It’s your plateau, your afterglow
Your pretty, pampered, pompous show
Seeded in property, procreation
Acceded to proper story, litigation
A dictated duration,
Passioned courtship’s due cessation!
Gift your rings, gift your hearts –
A trope’s trope, doused in hope!
She mopes at the arena’s farce
Watching dope after dope,
Citing providence, elope!
The ballerinas, the audience
This woebegone working girl
Never took lessons.
