For the WDC Birthday Bash, a couplet.
Once there lived a pretty small girl
Whose stepmother was but a churl.
Her black hair was smooth as satin.
She had a beautiful fair skin.
Her stepmother was envious
And her actions were villanous.
One day she gave her an orange
Which was of a color bit strange.
A doubt struck her and she threw it.
Hurling the orange in a pit.
The witch stepmother came to know
And she wanted a deadly show.
So she cooked a poisonous broth
Which was sizzling and full of froth.
She served it with a spatula.
She hunted her like a cheetah.
All her wild attempts fizzled out
When suspicion made Alice flout.
Pouring it under a willow tree,
The clever girl wanted to flee.
She followed a footprint and ran
And a new adventure began.
At night she found a dark, queer cave
From which a music made her rave.
A group of elves resided there.
Her joy and pain they used to share.
One day a handsome prince arrived.
All her glee he gladly revived.
He took her in a trolley car,
She lived like the wife of a czar.
