Gene O'div

The Red Queen walked to her
And asked: "My lovely, little girl,
What made you come again
Into this world of mind whirl
And realm of absurd dream,
The field of nonsense reign?"
And Alice smiled and then replied
"You see that wonder train,
I'd like to get on it
And make a trip across your land
To get to square number eight.
I'm so sorry, I've no time in hand,
I have to hurry and reach the place
Within... I think I'd better say
Six hours or so. The reason is,
My majesty, in fact that day by day
I'm growing older, and pretty soon
I'll reach the age when two famous hearts
Were touched with love to be
The greatest legend in all the parts
Of human world. Of course, you know
The names of lovers who I mean.
And there, on square number eight,
I wish to meet Romeo of my dream.
To be his only beloved
I left my home and through the looking-glass
I went." The Queen took Alice
By her hand and said: "My naive lass,
To be a Juliet you ought to know
One sombre fact - the lovers you're talking of,
They both had to die too young,
'Cause otherwise the most magnificent love
Would gradually have faded and
Become a dull routine, a boring grind.
Remember this: to give a legend
Longlasting future that leaves behind
The other stories of the sort
Two things are needed, the couple's not to split,
Youth and Death, they only
Can make a love an everlasting hit.

"You're travelling the wrong way,"
The Guard declared, "For today
We are to take another route;
Why, I hear one more toot,
That means we have to go straight away;
Please leave the train and don't stay."
"You shouldn't listen to his words,
His thought resemble silly birds,"
Her neighbour, a gentleman in white,
Defended Alice with delight.
"You know, girl, all's relative in space.
I guess I have to say my name, in case
You don't know who I am.
Just call me Albert, and never ram
It in my head that one can know
The rightest way to go.
This train will take you anywhere,
Relax and don't care.
All ways and paths just run to any point,
To get it you've got imagination to exploit.
What's the use of changing ways
Unless you want to waste some precious days?
The only thing I'd like to say to you:
To find the truth try changing points view."

"My train has vanished in the air,"
Complained the girl and sighed,
I lost my way and don't know where
Romeo and his dreams abide.
The place has got to have some name,
A proper or a common one."
The Gnat just laughed with fun:
"It seems your memory has gotten lame,
But no need to know names of things,
The only place names dwell within
Is someone's mind: mine, yours or his.
The question that you must take in
Is if your mind belongs to you;
If so, all things are yours,
The sun, a wind, green grass and dew,
Small thing and big, the old ones and new,
All stars and sky are yours,
And any dream, of course."

Tweedledee saw Alice reach the square bounds,
"Funny girl, he sighed, "she thinks she's real
All the world is only fiction,
dream, an absurd game."
"Anyhow." his brother looked around,
If this world has something real,
It should have the only name."
"Which?" inquired Tweedledee.
Tweedldum just spelled aloud:
A L I C and E."

"To change your future
Change your past,
By living backwards,
You'll see the future pretty fast."
The White Queen's words
Confused her guest.
"Your Majesty,Romeo lives in time that's coming next."
"My dear Alice,
I'm certain Albert has explained
That living any way,
You'll get rersult that's none too changed."

"You say you can forsee,
If so, please tell me what will occur to me."
The plea did not perplex the Sheep,
The answer came with no peep.
"One clever man once said:
"It's beauty that's going to save the world."
But Alice asked: "Please make it clear,
I don't see the meaning here;
What can these words predict?"
"Oh, girl. you're beautiful. just think of it."

Seeing Alice in the mall,
Humpty-Dumpty fell in love;
But he didn't fall at all
From the very narrow wall.

The King reported: "I've fully done my part,
I sent my horses, I sent my men
For calming Humpty-Dumpty down, who again
Has fancied he's Romeo of Alice's mind and heart."

The Caterpillar said: "My dear Humpty-Dumpty,
Please don't cry! She thinks your looks are bad and ugly
You'd better look at me: I'm often taken for a worm,
But, anyway, the fact has never made me squirm,
For rather soon, I guess, you won't recognize me
I've no hint of stunning beauty that you will see.
Remember this: she's just an infant who doesn't know
The way that things may look tomorrow."

The Hatter said:
"You've got an H in the beginning of your name.
The other day upon the girl I came,
She told me
She loved her love with... what d'you guess?
The letter H! The news is not too bad, God bless."

"My dear, comely Alice
Your ways are neither prim, nor pert;
A girl of no malice,
You cannot make my feelings hurt."

"I'm not too late,"
He stopped and grasped her hand.
"Oh girl of charming looks,
You see the last of brooks
To jump across and land on Square number Eight."

Humpty-Dumpty was too clumsy,
Up he jumped and down plumped.
And the waters of the brook,
Far away him took,
From the lassie of his dream,
Who had leapt across the stream.
