Post Modern Farey Tales!

Cinderella
she wanted
equally rights
a minimum wage
and the
vote for woman
Sleeping Beauty
wanted her
sticking rich
parents to
send her
to university
so she
could rule
the kingdom
with a gentle
touch
Snow White

her
grieve stricken
father
to raise
above
his lustful
desire

he wanted

Cinders
a flock from
Sleeping Beauty

seven
little

and lived
happily

woman
that she is

unless
a Knight in
shining armour
sweeps her
off her
feet
selling heroic
tales of
power and control…..
Alice,
however,
felt down

met her
shadow self
expanded her mind
discovered
self-empowerment
was awoken
from a deep sleep
BUT
they thought
she was
as mad
as the
hatter……
