Cinderella’s Pumpkin

A  brooding  mind  a  higher cause  define

For  every  answer  ten questions  incline

A  hurried  stroll  of  patience  to  perfection  find

Disbelief  that  all  will  fall peacefully  in  their  confine

A  want  of  a  wand  to  change the  design

Cinderella’s  pumpkin  to  a coach  fine

A  pumpkin  is  a  pumpkin  a warranted  resign!

None to  be done  but  a  gentle nudge a  forward  run

No  magical  eraser  to  erase this  drawing  drawn

No  Rogers- Hammerstein  to fine  tune  this  song

All  the  raves  and  rants  a tiresome  outcome

Be  it  as  it  is, it  will  outrun  its  long  course  of  find

Away,  away  your  questioning mind

Be  at  peace,  all  be  in  place in  time

Every  action  an  equal  and opposite  reaction, water its  level  find

The  balance  of  the  world  will be  righted  from  its  wrong

Of  victims  drown  in  the deluge  of  mistakes  yours  or mine

Before  this  experiment  is  put to  its  final  round!
