i feel like alice in wonderland,
toyed like a mouse by the cheshire cat.
chasing a white rabbit with no care for time,
check your pocket watch,
better check it twice.
the mad hatter cackling with crazy eyes,
don’t drink his tea,
you have no idea what’s inside.
endlessly shuffling a deck of cards,
maybe the mad hatter isn’t as crazy as you originally thought.
tweedledee and tweedledum are always telling stories,
but who tells theirs?
poor brothers alone,
queen of hearts must be the evil stepmother,
this is a fairytale after all.
her soldiers are cards,
always played with but never wanted.
don’t look into their eyes or listen to their words or you’ll be trapped in this world,
trapped in this madness,
“we’re all mad here”
welcome to wonderland.
