Sky high and sky fall by Grant Harbison

Alice and Lucy loved to get high
And soar through the bright diamond sky
Drift through strawberry fields free and unseen
Sink to new depths in a yellow submarine
Rise and run through Wonderland
Dance and sway to Sergeant Pepper’s band
Dancing with the walrus and the mad hat geek
In the land that had eight days in a week
But when the high got low and they had to get back
Reality would hit them with a vicious attack
Lying on the floor feeling the plight
The vicious comedown from a hard day’s night
They both felt the rumble of stomach punches
The inevitable craving for post high munchies
Alice looked at Lucy with a sparkle in her eye
And said, “How about rabbit stew and March hare pie?”
