I had a little sock tree

I had a little sock tree
Nothing would it bear,
But some little red socks,
And what a scruffy pair.

*

The queens of England’s son,
Came to visit me,
All because of
My little sock tree.

*

When he saw my sock tree,
And the scruffy pair.
He staggered back, aghast,
At the colour, rare.

*

He said, they are fine socks,
I must have them – I must,
How much do you want,
For the pair, he asked.

*

I told him that my socks,
Are not for sale – are not,
He replied, I must have them,
I’ll pay a pretty bob.

*

How much will you pay?
I asked, intrigued, a bit,
He said, I’ll pay ten thousand pounds,
Here they are, I said.

OFF WITH HER HEAD

OFF WITH HER HEAD

(From Alice in Wonderland on Top of the World)

__________________________

Off with her head, I said, OFF, OFF, OFF!

Off with her head; put it on a block!

Swing your axe high executioner; find the true mark!

I said off with her head, now; make a start!

***********

Why do you want to punish her, so?

Said the King for Alice, standing below.

She is just a child; a mere wisp of a girl,

Searching for Rabbit’s house at the Top of the World.

**********

For a moment the Queen faltered, mulling her plan,

Then she roared, Are you mouse or a man?

Alice’s head it must fall or yours will be next!

Off with her head and don’t make a mess!

**********

Standing, there, listening, Alice thought she was done,

Waiting for the chopper with its final anon.

Then down from the sky an old man appeared,

Then he whisked her away; tucked under his beard!

**********

She won’t be chopping your head, he said with a smile,

Father Christmas, to the poor, startled child.

Let us up and away and follow our snouts,

To the Top of the World and the Rabbit’s fine house.

 **********

Hissing her annoyance, the Queen voiced her thoughts,

Behead everyone, and then she went for a walk.

**********

Paint The Roses, Quickly, Quickly!

Paint The Roses, Quickly, Quickly!

Hurry – hurry!

The Queen is coming!

Paint the roses, quickly, quickly.

Hurry – HURRY!

I hear her creeping,

As ever faster my heart is beating!

Sorry – sorry!

We’ve failed our duty,

The Queen has seen us, sadly, badly!

Hurry – HURRY!

We must scamper,

Lest our heads with them she tampers!

HURRY – OH HURRY!

(There is no hurry),

Our heads were targeted; we’re lost; they’ve parted.

All is calm.
