“Lousy, good-for-nothing scarecrow. Blasted crows peckin’ every damn tomato the frost didn’t nab.”

“Ain’t no point in fussin’ if you cain’t do nothin’ ‘bout it.”

“Betcha I can scare ‘em off.”

“Howd’ja figger?”

“I’ll make that there scarecrow look more like you.”

gargleblaster: have all your clocks stopped?

alice and wonderland white rabbit

I’m late! I’m late! Her insides screamed,

as she kissed white rabbits hoping for white knights.

But the glass slipper never fit;

fairy godmother never appeared.

So she walks the plank toward midnight,

a punctual crocodile waiting beneath.

Tick tock. Tick tock.

gargleblaster: who dunnit?

Fresh blood spilled on the ground,
eyes darting all around.
Suspicions rose,
but bodies froze,
as ears rang from the sound.

With tensions running high,
none knowing truth from lie.
The smoking gun—
held by each one—
whispered in the air, “Goodbye.”
