Through the looking glass,

Alex stumbles to Wonderland.

The rabbit’s time never last.

Maybe The Mad Hatter

Isn’t all that mad.

Queen of hearts isn’t hateful,

She’s never been this sad.

Biggest heart in the kingdom,

Biggest chance of getting hurt.

Hate to love this complex tale,

Fairytale beyond the dirt.

Cheshire Cat disappears,

A trick I’ve seen many years.

Caterpillar smokes his pipe black

Cancer beyond his fear.

I’m never leaving or going back,

Wonderland has my soul.

Forget my life, forget the world,

I belong down the rabbit hole.

~R.K. Russell
