Breakfast in Wonderland

Breakfast in Wonderland

A Poem by An owl on the moon
"

Perhaps the Mad Hatter could teach us all a little civility in a world gone mad

"































On a most ordinary day

When hope ran silky slim

I found a dusty doorway

And in time I toddled in

 

Had the Hatter for company

A tattered March Hare for tea

Knave of hearts with halcyon tarts

And the Mock Turtle’s azure story

 

Time stood still in the corner

As we drank treacle from a well

And the Duchess made pepper soup

With a bitter strong pepper smell

 

Then the Queen in her robes

And the white rabbit in pants

Smiled at me and my Alice

With a purple passing glance

 

When the time for tea was done

I arrived at my world gone mad

Where we shoot men for sport

Perhaps dreaming isn’t half so bad...

very interesting, I like it when people put a sad or even sinister tone on Alice in Wonderland, it's such an amazing classic story, it gives children hope that there's something greater out there than our world and it gives adults the hope that things aren't always as they seem. I've written one of my own though I don't think it's posted yet.
I like this write though, and appreciate that you seem to have baste it off of the classic story and not just one of the movies.

Oh my friend.. so glad to have you back. Thank you. And yes, you have a lifetime ticket.
I love this! This is one of my favorites of your "Wonderland" poems. This has great rhyme & rhythm that conveys a sassy attitude. I love your tongue-in-cheek remark about shooting men for sport . . . the world has gone mad & it does seems as tho shooting for sport is far too frequent & it's really sad, but I also enjoy your caustic jabs to make fun of things (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Where madness is sanity away from the vanity and greed of the world- seeing it for what it is is an illusion of the truth being sought...dream on never stop believing...we will find it one day ...🌹
