The Craig and I

A Gift from my friend for my Birthday… the Craig and I… enjoy!

A Tale

 He was a little sad, the mercury he used to keep his hat up right made him a little mad

He always came for tea and had a story for The Cheshire CatCake 92-001

It was hard to keep Alice in check

Her dreams were too big for a girl

Too big for this world

Where happy lived with sad

And bad was just down the road from mad

 

A fool always played the room

Where thoughts escaped from good intention

And the sun sought the gloom

And goodness lost its cool

 

What more can be said

When a Queen says off with her head

Enough to wake any one up from a dream

But hope swirled under the Mad Hatter’s hat

And blue could take over a room

And poke a heart down the wrong road of a tall tale

There’s no shade for the waking

A requiem for a Mad Hatter

 

In a world where mercury

Holds a hat up so high

Sometimes even lilies can’t pretend

That happy can stay around
