Dallas in Wonderland (a poem)

Today, at the age of 54, I finally got around to reading Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass

I remember what the dormouse says in the song
(‘feed your head’)
but the book is another story

Sure, the characters are all familiar
from TV, movies, and nursery rhymes
and the latter-day land called Disney

but I never expected the girl called Alice
would turn out to be
a 19th century Victoria Principal…
