Alice! Alice! Where have you been?
The tea party is starting
And Dormouse is asleep again!
The Mad Hatter went missing!
I don’t know what to do.
He went to collect a tea-pot,
But it’s been an hour or two.

Alice! Alice! Help if you can!
The table still needs setting!
I want everything spick and span!
The tea cakes are still baking!
Oh! How it went all wrong!
Today’s been such a disaster.
I must face this all night long!

Alice! Alice! Stay if you will.
This party is ruined
And everything has gone downhill.
The forest has now darkened.
The guests are awfully late.
The Mad Hatter is still missing.
We should plan another date.

Alice! Alice! Thank you again.
Now the tea has gotten cold,
I think it’s time to end this then.
Forgive me if I’m being bold.
Now it’s time we all go home.
Leave this all here.  It won’t run away.
Tomorrow is but another day.

A Cheshire Cat

I lay on the bed and what do I see,
A Cheshire cat smiling down at me.
A grin full of mischief,
An eye full of cunning.
Does he really think I find him stunning?
A blink of my eye, a shake of the head
I turn myself over, feeling nothing but dread.
I pray and I hope, for I’ve been here before.
I wish he was gone since he makes my eyes sore.
Yet, there he sits, perched high on the shelf,
Appearing to be extremely fond of himself.
“What do you want now?” I plead as I cry.
“Why nothing my dear.” Is all he replies.
“I’m not in the mood.  I don’t wish to play.”
“Just leave me alone.  I’m having a bad day.”
“That’s really too bad, I mean you no harm.”
“You’re such a lovely girl; so full of charm.”
I turn my back and begin to pray
That he just disappears or fades away.
How long he remained, I do not know
For when I awoke, there was nothing but shadow.
I glanced at the perch and all that remained
Was the swish of a tail and a grin that waned.
