[Barbie Angell gives us her unique take on Wonderland in words & pictures. Please feel free to "feed your head!"]
The Hatter is mad
and sadder than that
the dormouse is asleep in the tea
And the glass holds the past
Will the memory last?
Will Alice come looking for me?
The words in my mind say I’m too undefined
No stories will capture my name.
While the White Rabbit screams
I’m alone in my dreams
Never to live what I’ve gained.
The Cheshire Cat
must know right where I’m at
‘cause his grin’s always over my head
But I’m on the run
since croquet is no fun
when the Red Queen assures me I’m dead
The White Knights slips by
with a smile in his eye
and says I must live to be free
And the Unicorn asks
if we’ve met in the past
he finds his belief within me.
