Fairytale Revisited

The following prompt is for Poet's United Thursday's Think TankThe topic was complaints/grumbings.  I just so happen to be overflowing with material!

The prince is late.
This castle ledge is getting moldy.
My silken hair is getting split ends up here
and the glaring sun is doing nothing for my agelines.

Ominous crows circle at eyelevel
Thinking i must be a madwoman
waiting
waiting
waiting
for a charming voice from below
that bellows i will be saved,
at last.

Been there - done that!
The ravens finally got me
So I had to do what your sidebar suggests -
Recover or die!
Back to being a Scarecrow!
