Almost Alice, lived in a grand palace,
with fine servants at beck and sway.
A kingdom at peace that knew no malice,
so throughout the kingdom she’d play.
She frolicked in soft hillsides green,
with streams blue under crystal sky.
A scepter of flowers, played Alice Queen,
commanding bunnies, birds, and butterfly.
Knighting squirrels of highest loyalty,
addressing the fish of the stream.
Head held high as the grandest royalty,
brightest sunlight made her crown gleam.
In her dreams Royal Court she’d convene,
Almost Alice, next in line to be Queen.
