Uninvited Guest



(A poem for children.)

I went to the Mad Hatter's Party.
My name is Filipo the Flea.
But though you may look
For me inside a book,
You will never, no never, find me!
I went to the Mad Hatter's Party.
And sat on the Mad Hatter's hat!
I jumped all around,
Without making a sound
On the table, the chairs and the mat!
I went to the Mad Hatter's Party
And nobody saw me at all!
You may look everywhere
But you won't find me there
Because I'm so terribly small!

(A Parody on the song 'Send In The clowns')

Isn't it fun!
Isn't it great!
Knowing the toil is all done!
Thank you to Fate.
This is Old Age.
Isn't it sweet!
Isn't it fine!
Knowing the work is complete!
Drinking the wine!
Turning the page.
This is Old Age!
Once I was young, long time ago,
Now the time hurries where once it seemed lazy and slow.
Making my entrance back then with a toss of my head,
'I'll hate old-age!'
That's what I said.
Isn't it rich!
Isn't it neat!
What a surprise finding life is still funny and sweet!
Still on the stage!
This is Old Age!
I'll continue to 'rage'.
This is Old Age.
