Party With Alice

“I must find some cash!” moaned the hare to the nurse.
“I owe Cheshire Cat and my debt's getting worse.
I  hope someone rich – lots of gold in their purse –
walks by so that I can stay out of that hearse.”

“Instead of you plotting, some poor soul to rob,
– an action that likely will earn you a mob –
why don't you just go out and get you a job?”
she said, as she cleaned out his ears with a swab.

“Employment?  Ah, yes, that's a much better fate!
I thank you, good nurse – your suggestion's first rate!
And now I'll be going, I mustn't be late –
the Cat doesn't like it, he gets quite irate.”

As later he stood by the path to Outside,
a strawberry blonde all alone he espied.
“Good day, little girl! May I serve as your guide?”
“Oh, I'd be so grateful,” the visitor sighed.

“I'm glad for your help,” said sweet little Alice.
“I seek the Red Queen; let's go to her palace.”
“Take care how you step, or you'll get a callus,
and ware the Red Queen: she's chock full of malice.”

The hare had it right – Alice left at a run.
“Go straight through the tunnel – just head for the Sun –
and come back to see me!  I had so much fun!”
Thought Alice, I'm glad this adventure is done!
