Tell me,

O Red Queen of Wonderland,

Answer me this,

A simple question.

Why a head?

You shout so often,

"Off with his head!",

Or her's if it is so.

Yet truly,

Why a head?

What is so special about it?

That silly thing with hair,

Carrying our eyes and ears,

And foolish mouths.

Why a head?

Is it so easy to cut off?

I would think not.

A spinal cord is attached,

And it makes quite a bloody mess.

Why a head?

Are you scared of our thoughts?

Our true feelings about you?

Deep within our conscious,

Waiting for a chance to lash out.

Why a head?

I asked that question,

Yet knew the answer.

We all fear our deepest thoughts,

Hidden in little cages.

Why a head?

Silly, foolish Queen,

Cutting the head won't stop the thoughts,

They're in all of us,

Waiting for the chance to strike.


Why not a head?

The seventh in my Alice in Wonderland series and still pretty dark. *Sighs* But I really like this one. When I was little I never understood why the Queen wanted to cut off everyone's head but now that I'm older...I think it's because she was scared of people's thoughts. What they thought of her and what they were planning.

That never occurred to me.  I just took it at history relevance value.  Nice thinkin' there.  Just hope the Queen doesn't become afraid of you.  *^_^*
