went looking for fun at the palace.
Trying not to be seen
by the King or the Queen,
she drank lemonade from a chalice.
She put the drink back on the table
and tried on a coat of fine sable.
Feeling no need to hide,
she went running outside
and fled on a horse from the stable.
At last the Queen finally spied her
and said to the King there beside her,
"Let us send out some men
to ride into the glen
and bring back this wicked outsider!"
The royals were glad the men got her,
declaring she'd be cannon fodder.
But then when she came in,
they saw (wearing a grin)
young Alice – the princess – their daughter!
