Stop Watch

Karen Robiscoe dba CHARRONs CHATTER

Q: Alice Little why’d

you wander

after rabbit

falling under

lepas lure

was it wonder

or waistcoat watch

that led you yonder?

 

A: Neither, nor

I tell you plainly

led me forth

it was mainly

rabbit feet

I find them dainty

besides the fact

they’re lucky—ain’t they?

 

Q: And when below

you quaffed in quarts

abandoned potions

cakes, and tortes

growing tall

and shrinking short

was that prudent

before Queen’s court?

 

A: I must agree

my judgment failed

when aromas

nose assailed

delightful scents

made senses bail

–excepting cakes

they proved quite stale…

 

Q: and what about

Mad Hatter’s fest

that you attended

on your quest

empty-handed

was that best

from uninvited

party guest?

 

A: In retrospect

I should have skipped

the gathering

or brought some dip

but in defense

my ass was kicked

from all that happened

on my trip.
