They all were so excited! Vanessa had invited them to a Mad Tea Party!
It had been an all together boring and rather lackluster Summer so far and a Tea Party
was just a wonderful and whimsical idea
to beat the heat and have some fun!
There were plenty of nice nibbles on the table already
but someone said they heard there would be Carrot cake later.
Everyone knew Carrot cake was the White Rabbits favorite!
The Gnome had composed a special new song just for the occasion.
The notes floated from his pipe clear and strong and the little birds in the trees sang along!
The tiny Gnomes brought mushrooms for soup.
But Gnome Bear just wanted some raspberries and bread.
The Chef was cooking as fast as he could
and Eloise was fussing with the waitress who had a bit of a 'tude!
She always got grumpy when folks were hungry!
A mermaid flew up from the lake-
so quickly I almost didn't get a picture to take!
She said hello and then goodbye-
I'd love to stay but I really must fly!
Moth girl was in love with her crown.
But Bunny Girl just wanted the witches gorgeous Gown!
The Witch was distracted by the green in the trees!
Never before had she seen such a color,
for usually they were all brown and gold and falling off and old.
The mutant only came because he heard there was cake-
He was first in line! going to get the first plate!
The birds thought that the mutant was really quite vain! In fact his boldness was plain!
They would beat him to the carrot cake crumbs!
It would be in their bellies before he could say yum!
Calamity Kim was there too- so happy to be having some fun! She wouldn't let the
squabbles make her come undone!
Little red and her wolf sat and giggled as Walter the Farting dog
chimed in with his booming butt bongo beat!
Rufus wondered how long this day was going to be.
He might need a nap up under the tree.
What about Stuart?
And Pinky and The Brain?
Did you call them?
Are they going to come?
Does it seem like rain?
This cheese is perfection- aged to a ripe delicacy!
You guys just behave-
and settle down a bit-
I'm going to go check on the cake and then I'll come back and sit...
I don't know what's keeping Alice and the Hatter or even the White rabbit for that matter!
They said they would be here!
A promise was made!
I better call them,
maybe they're stuck in the glade...
or sleeping in the shade...
Alice had to babysit that piggy baby,again!
So the rest of the gang had already left,
having eaten their fill and wished me their best!
Tea and carrot cake, what a delight!
We feel ten pounds heavier but will sleep well tonight!
Thank you all for coming and helping us party,
Walter sends his apologies for being so farty!
The piglet is snoring and Alice looks tired,
The Mad Hatter is running around with the dormouse,
both completely wired!
The tea had some gunpowder and ginseng too,
quite frankly, I think they are worse than baboons at the Zoo!
So Vanessa, Dear Vanessa and Mr Lovee,too-
Thank you for inviting us to play along with you!
The Gnomes and the elves are so very happy
and I think Chef has a crush- he's gone quite sappy!
Eloise stopped fussing for a sec and he said
something Swedish and started kissing her neck!
Moth Girl was shocked and headed for home,
The witch had told her the crown was only cheap chrome!
All in all it was a wonderful day,
here at my home where Calamity stays...
Love & stitches, Kim
