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...
