Dunking the Mouse

13 Mar

Dunking the Mouse

 Dunking the Mouse, Oh, Dunking the Mouse,

 What can be better than dunking the Mouse?

 Be it with a fine friend like the Rabbit, so stout,

 Or on my old lonesome, I love dunking the Mouse.

 *

I open the pot and stick his head in,

 And before he’s awoken he’s half the way in.

 With Rabbit a-helping, we finish the job,

 Then put the lid on, though Mouse is beginning to sob.

 *

‘Oh please let me out’, he implore us, so meek,

 But why should we do that when the tea tastes so sweet?

 ‘Oh give me a cup of that heavenly brew’,

 Says Rabbit to me, ‘and a jam tart for you’.

 *

So I pour out two cups and we sit down anew,

 With the tea and the tarts – and with Mouse in the brew,

 Until Alice strolls by, and unsettles our ruse,

 Saving Mouse from his fate and us from the noose.
