“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?” - Mad Hatter

The world is a super-fleeting-rundown place
You look around and think,
Just for a moment what have I got here.
Trash-upon-pollution with nothing in-between
Its suffocating me
The air has never been breathable it’s a lie,
It’s always been a lie
What would it be to take but a measly-little-five-seconds-from-our-run-down lives to pick up a piece of garbage?
There once was a young girl,
Who believed in the goodness in others,
Who believed that we could still be saved.
She had like-you-couldn’t-believe imagination
She wanted what was best for the world and she tried.
That little girls name was Alice.
And because she lived in a world so disgusting and rundown she created her own
Where flowers would talk and rabbits would wear waist coats and have pocket watches.
Because of what we have created a world not worth saving,
Alice had to create her own
Because even though her world was lost in dirty-garbage-cans-over-flowing-with-the-filth-of-our nation
She believed in the people
And so she told people about it; this magical getaway she had created
In whispers and stories so that we all would want to go to this enchanted place;
And we do.
Because why stay and fix the problems we have created, what we have destroyed for all future generations,
Just take-a-leap-of-faith feet first down the rabbit hole,
And if you truly believe and if you are true of heart
You see a little girl,
Who has been there all these years,
Who will welcome you by just saying:
“Welcome to Wonderland.”
