Interlude: Chopping Off Heads

When all about you seems despair,
There’s nothing clever anywhere,
Take but one good thing to heart —
Chopping off heads makes a good start!

The Red Queen ruled so long and well;
As poor Alice noted, her manners weren’t swell.
Her simple solution when trouble brews:
Chopping off heads can be a good rule!

If you’re feeling fractious at the state of the world,
If you hate that such rude behaviour’s the rule,
The eejits are winning, and suffering chronic:
Chopping off heads provides a good tonic!

[The serial will return next week.
