Rhymed Fable

Saturday Mix – Rhyme Time, 30 May 2020

Rhyme Time words this week:  able, label, fable, cable, table, stable


Child living grim fable

‘Cinderella’ well able

Cared for young stable

Her siblings at table

Dysfunctional label

Sadly later applied

To clan’s broken cable

Close kinship denied

Neglect, deceits double

Life’s toil and trouble

Twisted roots bear defeat

Fruit may tend to repeat

Family castle’s mere rubble


Postscript: ‘Cinderella’

Wed no prince, cruel fella

But escaped to solitude

Found wealth in gratitude

Claims “la libertà è bella!”*
