(Inspired by Lewis Carroll, aka Charles Dodgson)

"Twas brillig" I heard the Momerath say
Deep in his chamber pot
"The Jabberwock has run away
And stole the Tumtum's plot"
So to the warbling stream I sped
The Borogrove to meet
I saw not his noisome head
But I saw his feet
The Walrus gaily ambled up
I heard him slightly sway
By the butter I knew he supped
On oyster by the bay
What a cruel and vicious sot
Shells for all the world to see
But as I patted down my smock
Thought "Better them than me"

Nicely done here. Your creative talent glows within this poem.



I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily

So unique, I love it.     And the weird words made my head spin.

Build a man a fire, and he's warm for a day.  Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
