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

No, 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

that 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.
