hatter mad

Heather T

oh vitreous day

for shattering teeth

you must see my glass eating act


the dogs sneer and laugh

from their seats in the trees

so I twinkle them with my bat


they saw their reflection

with some introspection

in shards and did not like the sight


so hideous pretty

a bit like this ditty

they growled in caviling light




they growled in carnival light




they growled in carnivore light


fleas rage their sermons

the bandersnatch claws

both bark at my open door


confessing nothing

I grin bloody

and proceed to gnash some more

    Love this heather
    I like this kind of
    Not laid out, makes you

    • kevin browne

      always a spark full event when sitting down to embrace your writings. this is a great one Heather T and I think you're not hatter mad. thanks for allowing us to read it.

      • Heather T

        Tell me Heather, did you have a little nip "hiccup" while writing this? Love the poem, nip or no nip, it is not easy to even come close to the esteemed Mr. Carroll, nee Dodgson, but I would venture to say you may have done it!

        • Heather T

          I could have used a nip, but had to settle for imagination instead! I'm thinking I might need to add a couple syllables there at the end to fix the flow. What say you?

          • FredPeyer

            You want more syllables at the end? Here is a possible solution, but I am sure you could come up with something a lot better:
            Confessing barely nothing
            I show my bloody grin
            Last line unchanged
