The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

 

I wonder if the Reaper likes a cup of tea

He could join us at my tea party

I’ll invite him along to see

He could sample my tasty layer cake

and my posh conserves

maybe he’ll be nice to me

And I'd give him his just deserts

 

If I need a knife to cut

my delicious carrot cake

perhaps he’ll lend me his razor-sharp scythe

I hope for heaven's sake

as I wield a downward blow

it slices off his head

I'd make a tasty effigy

of 'The Reaper' in gingerbread

 

That would be quite funny

Que the Queen's well-worn catchphrase... 

"Off with his head!" 

 

As we watched it rolling down the hill

and headless dead he lays.

But who would then collect the souls

at their end of days?

 

Gosh! What a quandary that would surely be

Who do you think might know...

What was that vicar dear,

Oh! Would you like more tea?

'M'Lord or M'Lady the defendant pleads
He was off his head at the time of the crime.'
'Come, come, don't wither or whine m'lad!
Some are born good, and some are born bad
But you were born mad. And that's just sad!!'
So, off with his head! The old judge said.

There was no party in reality
I purchased a lovely gown
Now it's been worn by a hanger
Stuck somewhere in the cupboard
What a waste of party desires
I wish party could be one good reality
For a change, and not just virtual poetic one

Phew!!!!

Earl Grey. Excellent choice. I like green tea with honey. Tea, poetry, good company, relaxing tunes... that's my kind of party!

Helloooooo V

Earl Grey is my poison these days.

With milk poured from a little jug

I've given up the drugs, I'm no mug.


Apart from the one for breakfast brew.

It's great to see my poem you viewed.

"Let Them Eat Cake!" A Quote That Cost Queen Marie Antoinette Her Head... Actually No it did not!

That is a story for another day my little flower.

I am so pleased you came and liked and commented.

The clock is ticking midnights near
I’m off to head... sorry bed is calling in my ear
Alice pours me a good night drink
and I tickle her with my feather pink.

I would write them two French words here if I knew how to spell um!

Cait, so many are having a bad time
I want so much to help with rhyme
thanks to you we’ve hit double figures
The grand surprise I will transfigure

A video for all to see
‘The Mad Hatter’ dressed... As me!

Hannah, Thank you for dropping into party
let’s play a card game like ecarte
King is high down the rabbit hole
If I was a card it would be ‘The Fool’

I am so pleased you all came to see
what the Hatters party means to me
I wondered if a few would read
and answer my call, answer my need

I wanted to bring us all together
to be tickled pink with a Dodo feather
If one more WOLer hits the like
double figures are what I’d like

I have a little surprise prezzie
another side you’ll see of me
It may make you laugh, it may make you cry
Thank you one and all for dropping by.

Martin, many often lose there head
It does not mean that they are dead
Of course, sometimes they really are
Stitched back on leaves a hell of a scar

Becky, I am so glad you came
as on my list was your name
Better late than never dear
I am so excited that you're here.

Deceased the reaper now maybe
But what if... What if I’ve been deceived
The thing that may be fooled my mind
was that bloody scythe, I’ve been so blind

Was another felled in his place
as time has now ceased to race
Old Father Time has met his end
that f’n scythe his doom portend

For once I fear I am speechless on the demands that are many of beheadings here and beheadings there
the consecrated congress
of a slice of cake
a cup of tea
and head or three
one lump or two
please don't make it me!

I am so sorry to be late
I was delayed outside:
I see just crumbs left on the plates
and all the blood has dried

And YES! The Reaper is no more
Now Po’s cut off his head,
So no more dying, keeping score
Get on with life instead.

Up the tone, up the tone
M.C is here to sit upon his throne
Next to Queens sat side by side
Wrong them and... Well woe betide

As she shouts 'Off their head'
M.C announces that they're dead
Like a good Master of Ceremonies should.
As we welcome MC to this mad neighborhood

"Gonna be late...gonna be late..."
The White rabbit consulted his watch;
And much like him it seems my fate
To have to up my pace a notch.
But joining in this piece of fun
Seemed far too good to miss,
So I arrive hotfoot just like that "bun"
In lunatic literary bliss ! 🎈

HI Po,
how´s it going you ask

as always, as always
still falling from
one rabbit hole
into the next
still seeing
a dozen magic worlds
and a dozen falling heads
circle past me

but also as always
it wouldn´t be me
if I wouldn´t stop by
for a cup of tea

Hello Liam, hows it going
I see you entered without me knowing
then it seems you read and left
Did you tumble down the cleft

That rabbit hole is Oh! so deep
we all jumped in with both feet
at the bottom surprise, surprise
a strange new world to hypnotize

Not too far away those brutal times Po in the wider scheme of things - even football began by kicking down the hill, heads of the vanquished enemy. Enjoyed the read. P 👍
