“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

You look back and forth
Children working,
You see a three year old crying,
A four year old missing a finger.
You sit down and cry, too.
Then He comes out
Whip in hand
Hits you once, twice and then a third.
You look up
He says “Work, Now!”
And you do.
Twelve hours later you go home,
To wake up and do it again.
