Down this hole that Alice fell,
Where no creature could ever dwell,
She discovered a world that was all her own,
Never realizing that she was alone.
In this place, her head went wild.
She looked all around and then she smiled
For there were mirrors every which way,
And she noticed that she just could not look away.
Some made her look funny, some made her look tall.
Some made her look not very attractive at all.
But one single mirror made her look thin.
As she starred she felt a peace come from within.
“This” she thought, “is what I want to be.
Not the chubby child I normally see.”
Then in the mirror a smile appeared,
The cat then told her what she had feared.
In order to look like the girl that she saw,
She would have to focus on every flaw.
She would have to begin by not eating food,
Then exercise even when not in the mood.
She would have to listen to all that he said,
And follow the path to which she is led.
Alice agreed without giving much thought
She agreed to listen and do what she was taught.
The path she was led to was dark and was scary.
And she never once thought that she should be wary
All because she was young and naïve
The struggles she’d face she could not conceive.
But the cat, he knew what she would do.
She would listen to him and eat nothing too.
Then she would grow thin, and weak at that.
She would never question this lovable cat.
Although she was angry when he did persist,
That the tea party would just have to be missed.
She followed blindly what one person said
And never turned back to go home instead.
Now she is dead, starved in a hole,
All because the cat took over control.
She could have turned back before it was too late,
But she listened blindly and this was her fate
