Cheshire and Fat

you be the iconoclast
i'll be the hatter
i'll mend the statues
you tend to shatter
we'll be lyricists and linguists
consanguineous cats
informally affected
cheshire and fat
glimpses of glee but never quite free
so puzzled by who wrote the hymn
but we damm sure know
who wrote the book

the Cheshire Cat: his smirk has been emblazoned in my mind, ever since the first image of him I saw in the Alice in Wonderland. It was a very old book that my grandmother had. Anyway, I always thought that that cat was the epitome of sarcasm, and his smile stuck in my mind while he faded away. Nicely done here. Geezer.
