life is horrible
life is scary
my head is bald
and my legs are hairy

i had a dream last night
but it faded away
the queen came to visit
but she could not stay

i served her tea
in my best cups of china
and my repartee was sparkling
well, kinda

she smiled politely
and smoothed out her skirts
i forget what she said
but it still hurts

i woke up in my room
with a crack in the ceiling
and said to myself
well, how are you feeling?

next poem
