Alice In La La Land - Poem by Bridgid Patrick

Ding dong the witch is dead
The wicked witch is dead.
Somebody filled her brains with lead
and now the wicked witch is dead.
Ding Dong the witch is dead
Dead from the lead buried deep in her head
Dorothy! Quick! Run! hide under the bed
For a beast roams the land and hes loaded with lead.
Mary Mary! Where have you been?
'I've been to the slaughterhouse to study the scene
I used to have a little lamb, my father shot it dead
It followed me to school one day
Between two chunks of bread.
I used to have a little clock
I swallowed it one day
So now i'm taking magic pills to pass the time away'.
Alice in wonderland sitting in a tree
How divine!
A caterpillar that speaks in rhyme
A bunny rabbit that can tell the time!
I wonder at this wonderland
Devoid of the influence of the hands of man
I look toward the sky so blue
And wonder if this is a dream or true
Ding Dong the witch is dead
The wicked witch is dead.

    The most important aspect of this, is the originality of the
    concept. Originality is on of the first things we lose as
    we get older. Bridgid is still young enough to retain it
    and talented enough to make use of it. I'll read on.

    I use Alice in several verses in my 'Flocks have left the Fold', If possible, the subject is even more grave: http: // (Report) Reply

    Well I reckon a lot of drugs were involved, when they wrote Alice In Wonderland. Probably the same ones they used for The Magic Roundabout! The poem is great. I love the way you write.

    This whole poem is so 'Alice In Wonderlandish, ' and 'Through the Looking Glass.' Topsey Turvey, upside down world and very funny. Linda (Report) Reply
