As the minor key is struck
I have solved the Hatter's riddle,
Peered behind the curtain,
Viewed the void that waits
For those tripping blithely
Toward the grinning maw.
Machine-like, you chew through them.
"I will make you whole!"
Screams the merry sign outside
Your leer a warming grin beneath it.
Viewed in reverse, as I creep from your lair,
I have made your promise true.
