“The Cat in the Hat” by Mathias Jansson

The cat in the hat

The tree was green
and the cat was black
in which he sat
with a machine gun
ready for the attack

Alice fell with a questions mark
with three drops
of snow, shadows and death
painted in the sky

Why! Why! Why
Is my tea cold?
said the mad hatter
Does it matter?
Does it matter?
meowed the cat

Time is all we have
all we have
we have
echoed the hare
on the run back
to the paperback
hand in hand

with the cat in his hat
