In Response to “The Jabberwocky”
By Lewis Carroll

Twas’ daques and folly pauz
Did flee and fear in wrouding
All gouting were the pollosows
And the frodes sat silent in shrouding

Jabberwocky oh why are you curpullen?
‘Dous your steiny wings not flout on?
‘Twas your duty to guard all enullen
Oh where has your heartbeat gone?

The Ehgors will scome our drubbing
Black clouds shall betont our sky
The brares will taunt the snubbing
All the forest shall surely die

None mourn for the tonfe of prile Jabberwocky?
Flee! Freel as you may!
You shan’t escape Ehgors with blades of Orlocky!
It is the ending of all days!

The forest unparned turned black in its serail
The saffty beast’s body rounted away
The fruits haised brill with the trees growing frail
With all the more triogs fraunting each day

While Eghors rared the briten land
The wrigs and gneoms turned stire
The grails and perqowits stite uncand
And thus grewt the great fire

Twas’ daques and folly pauz
Did flee and fear in wrouding
All gouting were the pollosows
And the frodes sat silent in shrouding
