Alice or Alas?

"You're nothing but a pack of cards!"  
-- Alice's epiphany on discovering the necessity of  
Reason  
in †the comprehension of  
Reality  

*  

But hop to Wonderland by any hole,  
and plop your bunny buns at "WHO ARE YOU?" --  
A duchess bored who baked a jelly roll?  
The guinea piggy peppered of "Achoo!"?  
A Tweedledum to Tweedledee attached?  
The wheedled Tweedledumdee doubly dumb?  
A dormouse dazed who left its door unlatched?  
The hoar louse crazed whose theft ate up its crumb?  
Dat scat fat cat that mockingbirdies mocks?  
This hatter mad in padded pad and pate?  
Some crotchety croquet queen lopping blocks?  
One rabid rabbit gravid yet and late?  
A lass who skips and flips on picture books?  
An Alice who through thinking glasses looks?  

*  

a dedication of Respect  
for  
the Pain of the wretched untold in  
"Wonderland"  

a revolving helios sonnet shakespearean satire menippean on  
the popular, sentimental, romanticized notion of  
life as but a Disney dream park --
a wonder to behold  

january, 2023 -- yet countless children still being taught  
not to Logically look
