White Rabbit

  Standing White Bunny

Lewis Carroll saw you and
he fed bushels of carrots
so you'll play the White Rabbit
leading Alice down, down, down

into the dark rabbit hole
to the abyss of Wonderland—
Tea party with Mad-Hatter,
Dormouse, and the March Hare.

Rabbit blowing his trumpet
for the Queen of Hearts'
croquet game, where Alice
was banished from playing.

Then hoards of playing cards
came after Alice's getaway—
Hurry! Shut the gates so she'll
escape, and can relax at last.

Jules Verne is sending you
to the Moon where you pound
with mortar & pestle to make
the Elixir of Immortality.

Olympic Gold not given,
but the Academy Awards
await you in the future
for your outstanding work.
