Alice in Wonderland?

A Childhood Cancer Survivor Poem
© 2016 Christine Mulvihill

I walk to school every day
And every day I go the very same way
Today I thought I’d try something new
The grass was so green and the sky so blue.
So I walked through the trees
so I could smell the sweet breeze
As I got farther in the wood
Things got stranger than they ever could.
A little white rabbit stopped to ask me the date
And cursed as it ran off saying I’m late I’m late
A pink cat that seemed to disappear
Told me that I was ever so near.
On the ground was a deck of cards
The queen surrounded by all her guards
“Time” A mad hatter asked
But I was too focused on my task.
In the distance I heard a beeping sound
But saw nothing when I turned around
I felt someone poking me in the head
And awoke to realize I was still in bed.
