Through The Rabbit Warren

Down the tunnel stumbled Alice,
Where she met a smart White Rabbit
(Though her intrusion was remiss,
It did not become a habit).

She asked, "How long is forever?"
"Sometimes just one second," he replied,
Which she considered vaguely clever,
But not much of a guide.

"I will take you through my warren," said he,
"Don't touch that!" - as Alice eyed a cake -
"There are a thousand rooms to see,
And lord knows how long it will take."

Alice, following, soon noticed that,
As they moved through the huge dwelling,
There seemed to be, floating above them, a cat
(Her imagination needed quelling).

They proceeded through another door
And came upon a group of three,
So, stopping at Room 84,
They sat down for a cup of tea.

"Meld of Muses"
