: Cinderella The Little Glass Slipper

A pompous pug once thought that he

A dashing swell would try to be,

And on his neighbors one and all,

Sat out to make a stylish call.

He wore a glass upon one eye,

And on his head a silk hat high;

A wide, stiff collar around his throat,

And last an English overcoat.

So fine and splendid was his air

The very birds stood still to stare,

As walking on his two hind feet

He sauntered boldly down the street.

But oh, alas! it comes to all

To learn that pride must have a fall,

And e'er the corner he had turned

Poor pug that bitter lesson learned.

A saucy maid with one great whack,

Brought down her broom upon his back,

And as he raised a frightened wail

Another soused him from her pail.

Poor pug! that night he sat and thought

Of all the trouble he had brought

Upon himself, because that he

A foolish dude had tried to be.
