Now this post is an old post from long long ago. It is a version of "Alice in Wonderland" that I wrote in my old rhyming days. I truly hope that you will enjoy.

The old Madhatter scrambled up the ladder
and poured himself a cup of tea
instead of malice towards our sweet Alice
he thanked her and then he let her be
he came back to bring a golden wedding ring
and slipped it on Aliceís hand
but then she had denied to be Madhatterís bride
because she could not understand
"now thatís a strange howdy do?...what's gotten into you?
"there is something here I think is wrong"
"Iím someone you never see but you want to marry me?"
"you know to you I cannot belong!"
he said "hey that's ok" "Iíll be on my way"
"so to you I now must say goodbye"
"I was betting so" "that you would, in fact, say no"
and Iíd collect a hundred if Iíd try"
Alice was hopping mad thinking she'd been had
saying "now that really wasn't fair"
as he reached the hills counting out his bills
it didn't matter as long as he got his share
now poor sweet Alice went up to the palace
to see if she could clear her name
but the queen of hearts doesn't cut those parts
stating "Alice, girl...you are a pain!"
that made Alice wonder "I hope I didn't blunder"
"the queen here just might want me dead"
Alice smiled and spoke "it was just a joke"
"I really don't want Madhatterís head!"
as Alice turned to run the queen said "Iím not done!"
"it ain't polite to say a thing like that!"
"you will stay a while and we shall have a trial"
"you'll be tried before the Cheshire cat!"
Alice said "Iím late" the queen said "it'll wait!"
"for the charge against you is that you're not wed!"
Alice answered "Iíve good reason....rabbitís out of season"
"and besides my queen he'll wet the bed"
the queen said "yes, I see" "he does drink lots of tea"
the Cheshire cat screamed "that's how you plea?"
Alice said "your honor?" "yes, so am I a goner?"
the judge said "no! my child" "you are free!"
Alice sighed in relief it was beyond belief
the Cheshire cat said "but there are conditions to which you must agree"
"you've made your case" "the tears there on your face"
"were enough to tell me you told no lies"
"just get out of town!" "the next time you will go down!"
"take this as a word to the wise"
Alice said "I can live with that" "besides I don't wear a hat"
"and I get allergic to the food you serve"
the queen said "you've got your nerve!" the judge said "do not swerve"
as Alice laughed at the Cheshire cat
before Alice knew it the judge ordered "do it!"
and escorting her were royal knights
the judge said throw away the key and tie her to a tree
as Alice screamed "what about my rights?"
the king of spades and the royal court had read to Alice the decree
"for your disrespect" "we shall now inject
you with a potion that will taste like tea"
"this is poisonous for your rejecting us"
"put the blindfold on so she cannot see!"
now poor sweet Alice played with all the fellas
and now she has to pay the price
she made the queen feel jealous while she was in the palace
and we all know that that wasn't nice
it was Aliceís mouth that got her in this mess
but that isn't what this tale's about
she didn't seriously take the advice the cat would make
and now poor Alice is on her way out
Alice on her knees screamed "someone stop this please!"
"this is not the way the story ends!"
but the crowd said "yes!" we want one Alice less"
"can't you see you don't have any friends?"
to this Alice cried "i feel so bad inside"
"I didn't mean to be such a pain"
the cat said "you were vain!"
the queen added "don't forget insane!"
Alice said "or maybe it was just my foolish pride?"
the crowd said "donít let her slide!" the cat grinned very wide
and the queen of hearts said "I am surprised"
"this is an institution of your execution"
"and Iíll see to it that your appeal's denied"
Alice slid to the floor when the crowd yelled "more!"
as the executionerís axe found its mark
then Aliceís head rolled off the stage in red
about a minute or so after dark
the old Madhatter couldn't have been much gladder
the queen of hearts was satisfied
the Cheshire cat said "I guess that's that!"
and the crowd went along for the ride
the moral of the story in this lack of glory
is that no matter where your heart may fall
just be glad instead that it ain't your head
because for Alice it won't Madhatter at all

Absolutely in the spirit of the thing, Amor,
well-paced, witty and highly entertaining;
to write with such fluency and sheer confidence
like this needs a mastery of the subject in hand
and that you most certainly have.
I love this ageless poem.

It's been a long time since I've read Alice in Wonderland. Your poem brings it all back to me in a delightful way. I think I like your old-style of rhyming poetry. A difficult, but very well written, piece.

Cleverly concocted, Amor; quite a tale indeed. Coincidentally, I was inspired to write an acrostic about "Alice In Wonderlan" about a year ago which I posted here at AD. Thank you for sharing your wit and humor. Love and peace,

A pleasurable romp through the "looking glass", seeing Alice and her friends in a new and very funny light. Many of the lines in the poem are hilariously and ridiculously bizzare... just the way I like them! The poem may be old, but was thoroughly enjoyed by this reader!

A most entertaining read. Good work. Joy L. Hale
