TICK, TOCK!

Time For Wonderland.

 

It’s calling me, that volume;

it’s calling me, that book,

I’ll not put up much resistance

before I take a look.

 

I’ll flick through the pages,

see an illustration there

that really looks a lot like me,

especially her hair.

 

I’ll take on the role of Alice,

I’ll become the very girl

that steps in to a rabbit hole

that makes wonder then unfurl.

 

So many strange characters

are gathered there to meet,

as I make my way round Wonderland

with a skipping to my feet.

 

The Queen, she makes me nervous,

so often she is so cross;

the King seems to have accepted

that, of here, she is the boss.

 

There seems to be some fascination

in this land to do with Time;

White Rabbit’s always in a rush

and Mad Hatter did some crime.

 

It’s always time for tea, he says,

and Dormouse simply sleeps;

the Mad March Hare has a watch too

that his attention keeps.

 

Cheshire Cat, he wears a grin

of teeth so glowing white

when all that’s left, a smiling mouth,

it gives me quite a fright.

 

Caterpillar, talking blooms,

Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee,

Humpty Dumpty, playing cards...

there’s so much here to see.

 

So many times I’ve read this book,

I know each and every word;

I’ll read it under covers ‘til

my sight is going blurred.

 

I want to be like Alice

and get lost in Wonderland;

if you’d like to do that too, then

simply take my hand.
