The Private Life of Mad Hatter Mad Hatter may sport a smoking jacket to protect his waistcoat 'n' watch or meet you 'neath sprigs of mistletoe carrying bouquets of hollyhock. Mad Hatter may sip the finest tea 'til it pours out both of his ears. He’ll pester you with foolish jokes collecting your stitches and tears. Mad Hatter may draw very well or leave little but lines on a page. Mad Hatter may belong elsewhere: on a soap box, a platform, a stage. Mad Hatter may mean well but simply knows not what to say. Opportunity tends to slip by while watching his time pass away. Mad Hatter may tell you he loves you. He might also forget what to say. But that doesn't mean that he doesn't. That's just the Mad Hatter's way.
