If you can laugh at it, you can live with it. ~Erma Bombeck

A sight like that
A headless cat
Is not so strange to see
But a bodiless smile
Is worth your while
For it will fill you with glee

I can speak in a riddle
And do not piddle
With meaningless bursts of prose
I prefer rather
To dither and dather
With things you can only suppose.

I provide clues
And snippets of news
But never what you want to hear
In order to know
Which way you should go
You must lend me an ear.

I will tell you of cards
Of queens and their yards
Of hatters that love to have tea
Then I’ll leave you there
My smile mid-air
For none is as mad as me.

The author's comments:
If you haven't guessed already, this is another in my Alice in Wonderland series, this one modeled after the Cheshire Cat in the Disney animated movie.
I'm not quite so fond of this as the others, but I still like it, and figured it was only right to put them all up here.
