There is a certain elegance to his MADNESS
He is still dressed in a top hat, in a suit and bow tie, even if they are scruffy
There is a touch of calm in his WILDNESS
He still knows what he is doing even if his actions may seem absurd
So, can you trust him?
You want to, but will you?
When his smile is so like a cat's?
And when that smile lingers in your memory, even when you cannot quite recall the look in his eyes?
But then, it is not a matter of trust (Is it?)
There is a deep, a DARK, hole that leads you to him
And you will fall down it
Whether you can trust him or not
Well, why not?
He does, after all, seem to trust you
He invited you to sit down at his table
Did he not?
And he is so terribly earnest
Even if he does speak in riddles sometimes
But you will get used to that
So, I think perhaps you should trust him
Would it not hurt him if you did not?
And would that not be CRUEL?
You do not want to hurt him like that
Not when he is tugging on your heart like a branch caught on the skirt of your blue dress
Besides, is it not fun?
Is it not wonderful to eat the cake?
To drink the potion and to play the game?
So, yes, I think you will trust him
But (and one last question)
Have you ever seen a cat's smile?
