(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"


“It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most
intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.” Charles Darwin

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.
