Alas, alas, my little bonnet,
What makes you go and turn so pale?
I wonder if you’ll take my head
Into the depths of this dying whale….
‘tseems the broken bounds
Of such a lovely heart overstep
E’en the darkest of penultimate inks…
Of that I still work out the kinks.
Bobbing bobbies upon the shore
Catches fancies, holds s’more.
Hopefully the raven caws
Instead of calling tiger claws…
Believe in me, m’darling.
Believe that I can stay alive.
My rapier’s broken, my hat’s aflame —
I’m of water; blaze I can tame.
I wish to thee
To one day see
And remember remember,
Maybe recall the way it ends
And how we fall so
Separately and yet together
I grasp your hand and hold it close
But they pull apart all I love
And rend my mind and take my brain
Alas alas! I scream in vain.
This time my thoughts are more erratic
Filled with a great kinesis, energy bounding
Like the most detonative of gazelles.
We march on at the edge of our hair,
Hoping to concede upon a common gathering.
Anon, she calls so fretfully so;
I rush forth to save them none.
Oho! The battle’s done and won!
The war is gone and I may flee
Home, home! to all I love and wish to see!
Loss of mind, of head, ‘tis none.
Remarkable, maybe, the memories
Swarming about in my wee head
For she hated me so to ensure mine never gained
That bulbous feature that was her own;
Nay. There was no time for fret to make
But tea, the tea it must be saved
For without tea honey’d purpose be none,
And all will drown in the darkened sun. She shall
Recall, recall, remember again, for once she
Hath touched my cheek, she can never dismember
That most remarkable, mayhaps, of memory.
I smile at the cat whose tail is damned, for he knows victory.
