Adventure Calls

The Cheshire cat did once say;
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go”∗,
but for me it matters that I go,
and seek what may be found;
Tomfoolery, Shenanigans, and Malarkey
are my friends, and
we journey out beyond the pale,
well, past Dullsville at least,
and find our colour there,
Serious and mature will find us Tuesday,
till then,
adventure calls.
