Grinning Like a...

Alice in Wonderland by YukiValentine


Come back here, you frightful cat
You won't escape again
I'll soon catch you, you tricky rat
and you'll be sorry then!

You say you want to help me
but then get me in to trouble
and instead of being remorseful
you go off and make it double!

I've never seen a cat like you
who grins so big and wide
and no one will believe you're true
because you like to hide.

A cat without a smile
is nothing very strange
but a smile without a cat
is really quite deranged!

So before you disappear this time
I've got your stripey tail
I want you to confess your crime
before you fade to pale.

And if you do not like that
I'll apply a little pressure
Then while you're screeching like a cat
I'll grin just like a Cheshire!

I've appreciated Alice in Wonderland more as an adult than I did as a child. I enjoyed your fun poetic spin on the story :)
