Jabberwocky

Oh! how grand it is to write

A poem,

Jabberwocky, you say?

Mix, confuse, re-use,

Words,

Easy-peasy,

Create sense out of non-sense,

Oh! how grand it is to write jabberwocky,

Had the jitters thinking,

What to write,

Strands of hair flew hither- thither,

Glasses lay askew,

Laugh lines halt trying to image something funny,

Oh! Create sense out of non-sense!

Oh! how grand it is to write jabberwocky,

The thinking cap churns ideas,

Do I write about a man who always cried for help?

Do I write about a lady who missed her every step?

Do I write about a monkey who ran without any plan?

Do I write about a cat who chased pigeons just because he can?

Oh! Creating sense out of non-sense!

Oh! how grand it is to write jabberwocky,

The thinking cap tried ,tried and now tired,

The pen tumbles without a grumble,

Before I fumble,

Or take up jabberwocky as a hobby,

I know better than to say,

It’s easy to create sense out of non-sense!

  1. I enjoyed looking up Jabberwocky and finding different versions 😃

    I’d write about things I do every day that don’t mean anything to me and then find meaning in a poem or article.
