Paint the Roses

A new Alice in Wonderland story

Paint The Roses, Quickly, Quickly!

Hurry, hurry!
The Queen is coming!
Paint the roses, quickly, quickly!


Hurry, HURRY!
I hear her creeping,
As ever faster my heart is beating!


Sorry, sorry,
We’ve failed our duty,
The Queen has seen us, sadly, badly!


Hurry – HURRY!
We must scamper,
Lest our heads with them she tampers!


(There is no hurry),
Our heads are targeted; we’ve lost; they’re parted.
All is calm.
