Hast thou slain the Jabberwock?

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves

Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:

All mimsy were the borogoves,

And the mome raths outgrabe.

    'Beware the Jabberwock, my son!

    The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!

    Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun

    The frumious Bandersnatch!'

    He took his vorpal sword in hand:

    Long time the manxome foe he sought-

    So rested he by the Tumtum tree,

    And stood awhile in thought.

    And, as in uffish thought he stood,

    The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,

    Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,

    And burbled as it came!

    One, two! One, two! And through and through

    The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!

    He left it dead, and with its head

    He went galumphing back.

    'And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?

    Come to my arms, my beamish boy!

    O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!'

    He chortled in his joy.

    twas indeed crack Master Carroll used

    even before the medicine had name

    ne'er before had a chemical been so abused

    by one so silly and so lame

    how the heart doth lie in bitter ruin

    when the jabberwock's tale too sad to tell

    thy reader takes a mighty screwin

    for thy author reads like Dr.Suess from hell

    That was my friend Bill's favorite poem. He always wanted a vorpal blade when we played D&D, but he couldn't make his 18d roll to the gods.

    It seems very pretty, but it's rather hard to understand. Somehow it seems to fill my head with ideas- only I don't exactly know what they are! However, somebody killed something, that's clear at any rate.

    No, but I've re-educated and rehabilitated it and it's now working as a shop attendant in Clapham.
