You might think you’ve peeped the scene,
You haven’t. The real one’s far too mean.
The watered down one, the one you know;
Was made up centuries ago.
It made it sound all whack and corny,
Yes it’s awful, blasted boring.
Twisted fiction, sick addiction,
Well gather ’round children, zip it LISTEN!
Nicki Minaj’s re-interpretation of Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes about “Cinderella” is ingenious. I recommend giving Revolting Rhymes a read. The satire of the poems reminds me a great deal of Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels.
