Dunking the Mouse

06 Nov

Alice in Wonderland
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.
