Cupcakes and Tea
9-01-14

“Oh dear, what's the matter,”
said the Hare to the Hatter
while the Doormouse soundlessly snored.
“What just can't compare,”
said Hatter to Hare,
“is the fact that I'm hungry and bored.”

“Twinkle, twinkle,” was heard
as the sleepy Mouse stirred,
“We're British, by jove, we like tea!”
So the Hare plated up
while Hatter poured cups
and they both had a cupcake or three.
Ok, so a different version of this was floating around my head at 2am this morning, but I decided to remain inside my warm cave and hope I remember it in the morning. I dare say that this version is somewhat better than 2am inspirational drivel.
(Written at work while I have some time to spare with my one supervisor sitting opposite me...scary is it not!)

You have a great sense of rhythm here - often, when I read rhyming poetry on dA, the writer forgets that half of the equation :XD: It's a delightful and whimsical little piece.

This is cool! The rhyming lines really drive it forward, and I would love to have a "cupcake or three!" Good job! (=
