When Wonderland comes tumbling down, who is left to raise it up tall?
The flowers have stopped their singing, and the children can only cry,
So our dear Alice shall dive into the fanciful minds to prove once and for all,
Even forgotten memories can touch their wings to a forlorn sky.

Because the White Queen is Red and the Red Queen is White,
And the Cheshire Cat keeps on grinning throughout the night.
Poor little Alice is late, late, late for a very important date,
And soon all will be lost in the final checkmate.

The cards have all been shuffled; the die has been cast,
The castle walls have slowly been melting
And the summer’s moon seems it will not last,
For in the winter’s fiery gaze, all is smelting.

Because the White Queen is Red and the Red Queen is White,
And the Cheshire Cat keeps on grinning throughout the night.
Poor little Alice is late, late, late for a very important date,
And soon all will be lost in the final checkmate.

Her blade is at last ready, her armor complete,
But her heart and soul are as refined as a slough of peat.
Will you steel yourself for the war, dear Alice?
Or will you let yourself fall down, down, down to the maddening malice?

Because the White Queen is Red and the Red Queen is White,
And the Cheshire Cat keeps on grinning throughout the night.
Poor little Alice is late, late, late for a very important date,
And soon all will be lost in the final checkmate.
This...is extremely old. Hence the crappiness of it. I wrote it during December, when I had written the prologue to a story with this plot. I've only gotten to chapter two of it and it's been six months. :|

but, I wanted to post this up even though it's raw and unedited and really bad. It took me awhile to write it, I remember. Blah.

Not putting this in any groups because it's mainly just a derp piece, if that makes sense. It's supposed to be like a song. ^^; That's why there's the repeating verse...it's the chorus...

Enjoy my old poetry when my mind rambles on as I'm writing it. Haha!

(the reason it's under horror is because the story itself is horror-esque, and there are inklings of it in the poem...I hope)

It's not bad, well, at least to me. This is sooo like a song. If I was more creative I'd make a melody for this...

I like ..pretty uch the entirety of the first verse, the chorus, and the third verse.
"Because the White Queen is Red and the Red Queen is White..."
Now I'm interested! May I ask what the story was about, beyond grim Alice in Wonderland?

The White Queen is the bad guy and the Red Queen is the good guy, Alice is the Red's bodyguard, and Wonderland is going to shit. :D

Pft, I have only two chapters and a prologue and I don't think I'll write any more. I want to, but all the drive for it has disappeared as of late.

Daww, well I meant the books by lewis Carrol, but now I'm intrigued by yours. And isn't it so annoying where you have an idea that you're interested in and yet you don't have the will to work on it? @_@' pat
