I Asked Alice,

Just like Alice I go down the hole,
slipping, sliding, into the dreams of my soul.
Eat me, Drink me, this one says,
They taste just like strawberry PEZ.

I shove the delight in my lips,
The ground below me dips and trips,
"Too big, too tall!" The White Rabbit shouts,
But I can't find my whereabouts.

I stumble forward my vision blurred,
My knees shook, my stomach churned.
"Tea, Tea!" The Mad Hatter squeals,
But I have no time for his foreign meals.

The smoking caterpillar is who I run into,
Blowing smoke into my face is all he's akin to.
I drift away; woozy with delight,
And it's the running rabbit who gives me a fright.

"We're late, Mary Anne!" He pulls me along,
I faintly hear the Mad Hatter's birthday song.
But we see the paper roses all in a row,
And the white rabbit tells me of the show.

"The Queen," He Yells, "The Queen of Hearts."
Everyone bows, but I don't have the smarts.
I stand t here tall and proud,
"What is that girl doing?" Says a card very loud.

The ground begins to awkwardly quake,
As I see the Red Queen my knees being to shake.
The white rabbit flees to my dismay,
As the Queen arrives paper flowers being to decay.

No,no, I know how the story ends,
I bend down and put my head in my hands.
"This is no story, your life is running short,"
I open my eyes and see the court.

"Guilty, guilty!" The audience cheers,
The Queen smiles, "It's the end for you my dear."
The gravel comes down, time begins to slow,
I drop the ground, how'd it get so low?

"Wake up!" someone hisses in my ear,
My eyes open, it was a nightmare, a great fear.
I'm still in class, I feel asleep,
I fell into my dreams way too deep.

"Come on, we're going to be late,"
My stomach drops at my fate.
But as my friend pulls me along,
I can still hear the Mad Hatter's Birthday song.

I did not much care for the repition, but I did see why it was there. Overall it was a good job, but I would have tried without repeating the entire thing again.
