I'm sitting here
with a cup of tea,
me and my hat
the only company.
 
I sit here,
watching the world,
spin out of control
as the world is far away, yet so near.
 
Then along comes a rabbit,
holding in his hand a small clock,
that's whispering, "tick, tock". . .
the end is drawing nearer, time says. 
 
I was just sitting there,
me and my hat;
haha, the old chap.
Thinking, "I must be mad."
 
Maybe just a tad. . .
No, I am quite mad. 
Oh well,
at least I keep things interesting.
 
So here I am,
sipping tea,
just a normal schedule
for my hat and me.
 
I am drinking tea,
beholding the madness this world is in;
the madness is swirling,
and I am part of it.
 
So I take off my hat at you,
and greet you
with a twinkle in my eyes.
And if you ever see me,
you'll see me sipping tea,
me and my hat 
the only company.
For I am,
"The Mad Hatter."

Haha, I wrote thsi poem kind of for fun. It mightn't really make sense, but I hope it makes senough sense that you will be able to enjoy it. I wrote this thinking of my screen name, which I had just changed to TheMadHatterEmilyDickinson. I know. Haha, it's a very long name and a rather strange name. I was also, thinking of the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland. Let's not also, forget the cup of tea, haha. I was thinking of that, also. I hope ya'll enjoy it! And thank you for reading my poem! ^_^
