Mr Lewis is Lewis Carroll, also known as Charles Dodgson, who wrote the books 'Alice in Wonderland' and 'Through the Looking-Glass'. This poem refers to when Alice was asked by the Mad Hatter why a raven was like a writing-desk.

Why is a raven like a writing-desk?

Mr Lewis asked me that.



I can say why a pen is like a sword

Cutting to the quick with every stroke

Of nib or blade.



I can say why a tree is like a rock

Standing firm, unmoved until someone breaks it

With hammer or axe.



I can say why a reed is like a man

Turned this way and that in a flash

By wind or word.



But I can't answer your question,

Mr Lewis.

I love Lewis Carroll. Cool poem.

Scott Tracke is someone who writes a bit like Lewis Carroll. Check out his poems too.

Have fun clicking around. You'll fit in just fine here. --Charlie
