She's tumbling down a rabbit hole,
She's falling through the sky.
She's picking up those "happy" thoughts,
She's learning how to fly.
She's biting into forbidden fruit.
She's clicking her heels together.
"Which way do I go?" she inquires of the cat.
He shrugs and says,"Whereeeeever..."
"Drink me," proclaims the label on the bottle.
"Eat me," demands another.
She tries a little of both and finds
That she's swiftly changed into her mother.
She cries herself an ocean of tears
And finds that she can't swim.
She flails about in a useless dance,
Her consciousness slowly growing dim.
Then a strong hand pulls her out,
She looks into eyes like her own.
They tell her to give up this fantasy
Of the world she's never really known.
She's tumbled down the rabbit hole.
She's fallen through the sky.
She lands on her feet this time.
She gives the world another try.
