Poem: Alice in Wonderland
"One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. "Which road do I take?" she asked. "Where do you want to go?" was his response. "I don't know," Alice answered. "Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."" -- Alice in WonderlandShe came across a path that twinned
Where sat, content, a cat:
'The choice is yours,' it purred and grinned -
'And what a choice, at that!'
'The left departs – to what effect?
The right returns a mile.
But always all the ways connect,
If only for a while!'
'So which?' it winked with dark delight,
While Alice shook her head:
'If right is left, and left is right,
Then which is right?' she said.
'Whatever fate,' the cat replied,
'Or fortune might befall -
Unless you make a choice,' it sighed,
'You’ll never move at all.'
She stared ahead in thought and frowned,
Then at the ground below -
It wouldn't do to turn around...
So on she chose to go.
