# Almost Alice school performance poem

The curtain rose

Everyone took a pose

The gleaming light shone on the white army their graceful , beautiful ,

captivating dance filled the stage with delight and wonder as the steps astounded the audience.

contained wonder………………

BAM

A blood army of impostors march in and interrupt the dance!

Their loud aggressive musical fight draws the audience closer , closer , closer

The steps are scary and roaring

Pure madness

The curtain rose

and everyone took a pose
