Logical Phallusy


I’m English; from Cambridge; adult male.

I’m ‘privileged’, ‘cos I’m blue-eyed and pale:

De facto a racist,

Homophobic, misogynist.

But I repent: now I’m African female!


So I’ve written my own dictionary,

In which race and sex arbitrary,

Mean I can bear twins,

Wear real leopard skins,

Whilst frolicking with unicorns and fairies.


I met the Red Queen at her Palace,

She asked: “what’s your name, is it Alice;

Where are you from?”

I said: “The Kingdom,

Of the Rabbit Hole of Ignorant Bliss.”


She insisted: “I’m sure your name’s Alice,

That’s what we were told at the Palace!”

I replied: “who I am

Is a lover of jam,

And I want jam tomorrow, with scallops!”


Said the Red Queen: “I know your name’s Alice!

And your brothers are Gromit and Wallace!”

I said: “that’s on Sundays,

And sometimes on Phundays,

When I phorget I was born with a Phallus”.

And you can choose one name whilst having another in a topsy-
turvy world of creation.

Everyone knows of course Lewis Carroll as a children’s author. What is less well known is his “day job” as mathematician and logician, which is where he gets many of his literary paradoxes from.
