I love this Judith Viorst poem. It seems particularly suited to the season of too-much-punch holiday parties. It's from If I Were in Charge of the World and Other Worries: Poems for Children and Their Parents (Judith Vorst (author), Lynne Cherry (illustrator), Aladdin, 1984)
...And Then the Prince Knelt Down and Tried to Put the Glass Slipper on Cinderella's Foot
I really didn't notice that he had a funny nose.
And he certainly looked better all dressed up in fancy clothes.
He's not nearly as attractive as he seemed the other night.
So I think I'll just pretend that this glass slipper feels too tight.
