Not a fairytale

Twinkle, twinkle mirror-tall,
Am I even a bit fair at all?

“Not you, never you.”
Cruel eyes look back at me.
“You know you are ugly.
You know I speak true.”

“Always a piglet — never a fawn.
Little duckling — won’t become a swan.”

“Won’t fit the white dress,
Won’t fit the glass shoe.
Not a princess,
No prince wants you.”

Twinkle, twinkle mirror-tall,
T’night, Cinderella won’t go to ball.
