A poem in the tradition of Lewis Carroll's Jabberwocky with overtones of Dr. Suess.

By Charles J. Sloat

"Kersnoodle" he cried
Though he didnít know why
Perhaps he perthunked or kumbiddled his bop
Maybe he hit his ontominous snop
Or perhaps he just lost his transmutional book
Or smingled and caught his hindfingle snook
Whatever the problem it came as a shock
Because then he dropped his seditional sock
This caused him to thimp the medutional chair
And he heffered and windled his hands in the air
He fell to the floor with a tince and a slew
And tore his leftiferous confinger too
Now his dindiffer was snaffling and turning red
So he glarfled a pincture into the qued
Since he bled quite a bit from the glarf on his swooth
When he noticed a larfully plarg on his tooth
He pulled himself up off the hard dilly floor
He righted his narble and quaffed up his quor
While he cleaned himself up and he righted his hat
And requintered no warbly had seen much of that
He walked out the farnbly and into the night
Heíd learned his monesser and glarned from his plight
Whenever confronted with a gloop from galore
He would never kersnoodle so glipply no more

Now this is what I call word play. Brings me back to childhood days of reading Jabberwocky and Dr. Seuss and even a little Silverstein.

What an original and witty poem. I agree with Michael, you could give Dr. Seuss a run for his money.

Any man knows nothing is more painful than snaffling his dindiffer.
