Had I Been Alice...

I once picked an unknowing bottle
and drank it to the core
it shrank me to a gnat-sized me
and hurried me through a door

upon the passage through
I nearly drowned in my own tears
but then I reached a sunny coast
and my sadness disappeared

I was welcomed by animal-like beings
That strangely spoke in a similar tongue
They sang and spun and approached me
asking, “Darling, do you know fun?”

I should say I thought I had
until I experienced this day-dream land
so I shook my head and took awkward steps
and reached hold of their extended hands

I smiled honest smiles like never before
I was so glad to have opened the untelling door
