ALICE MATTER, MAD AS A HATTER, SAID, ”ALL HAIL THE DARK QUEEN”


Barging down the river a mile
I once met a crocodile
Whose smile
I didn’t really care for

I asked my maid in waiting
If she’d do a little baiting
And have the ax man
Do away with that which I abhor

Now I beam a benign smile
It’s pure pleasure there’s no guile
Believe me
I love my shoes, my clutch, and the beautiful Nile
