"A Dark Faery Tale" #5: Malice in Underland

Updated on August 23, 2017

"You're late," said Alice.
"Time is up.
Now, hand it over!
More tea in your cup?
See this hat here?
It belonged to the mad hatter.
and that vile red queen,
well she just got fatter.
I've painted my last rose.
I use their blood instead,
to paint hearts on the walls,
such a lovely shade of red.
Even that dispicable rabbit,
he got on my last nerve.
I used him as stuffing,
for this chair I have earned.
So, tell me, who are you,
that I should let you go?
I'm all alone here,
except for this cheshire cat we all know.
I can't seem to get rid of him,
he's just too hard to catch.
But, alas, he comes in handy,
and you are no match.
So drink up my friend,
and look deep in my eyes.
We had a deal, remember,
gosh, look at the time!
Time to pay up.
Your soul shall be mine!
You can try to run,
but there's no where to hide.
Your screams can't be heard
thousands of feet underground.
There's no Wonder here,
only Malice can be found.
Eat with me, drink with me,
and I'm sure you'll understand,
that I'm no fairy, no hero,
I'm Malice in Underland.

      Know publishers? You kidding me? Lulu.com and Xlibris.com. Lulu will be my publisher for my poetry collection, when it's ready. I don't know about doing it for free...that would be so cool, wouldn't it?...

      Loved this hub, Nikki. You have a wonderful imagination, so powerful, and you can turn it to anything. Malice in Underland, wow. You could develop a whole series of these and make a book of them. :) And it is very modern and based in the "now". Weird is good with me. Very Tim Burton-esque. :)

      Morning Nikki.

      Had a good laugh last night sitting watching TV. Up pops an ad for a film coming this next monday. Wait for it ------------------------- "Alice in Wunderland". Naturally it brought your poem to mind. My wife couldn't understand why I was laughing and said i was going crazy. lol

      Hi Nikki.

      With these last poems of yours I think it has brought out a little wicked "Malice" that we've not seen before and do you know what I love it. It brings a new atmosphere to the poetry we have on hubpages. This dark, dusky side of you is seductive. Super hub, keep em coming. lol

      thanx for all the great comments on this. and bella i believe i found your comment idk what happened there it asked me to click either not spam or delete forever. well i know your not spam so.. and randyb, the poem is written as if Alice or should I say Malice is speaking... whom shes talking to could be anyone. perhaps the caterpillar, or perhaps some strange girl who came across "Under"land such as herself. could be you, could be me, if you dare bet your soul on something. ;)

      Nikkie I can't help but wonder who the voice is behind the poem. The caterpillar perhaps?

      I do enjoy a sarcastic rhyme or two. I find it easier sometimes to write funny stuff or if I am stressed out a bit, I can turn it around with humor...... A little dark, a little scary, I'd hate to be your tooth fairy!!!
