Here’s a little bittersweet rhyme I came up with about Heartless. It helps me cope. (If you haven’t read the book this will sound like nonsense to you, and if you have read the book it will still sound like nonsense but in a way that makes perfect sense. Such is the way in Wonderland).
Murderer, Martyr, Monarch, Mad,
Fox, Owl, Raccoon
Weave a tale so wonderfully sad
About our favorite palace loon.
My poetry skills are rusty, yes, but then again I thought of this within 2 seconds and didn’t think twice about revising it. It’s not meant to be poetic necessarily, it just uses things from the book and some words from my imagination (unless it is poetic, in which case, yes it was definitely meant to be like that 😉 )
