Jabberwocky

Postby Mookie4ever » Thu Jun 17, 2004 2:43 pm

`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, has thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!'
He chortled in his joy.


`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.



Lewis Carroll

I don't know what the purpose of this is, but I find it pretty damn funny because my friend used to think Chewbacca from Star Wars was a Jabberwocky (I guess he combined Jabba and Wookiee). We thought he made up the name until we found out what it was...................... :-D

A great poem. A friend of mine actually memorized it back in high school and still remembers it to this day.
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

Lewis Carroll is brilliant.
This is my favourite all time poem.
I remember my Dad reciting it to me all the time.
I learned it by heart by grade 1.

Interesting you should mention this just now; I just came across 'Oh frabjous day' last night in The Stars' Tennis Balls. Fry stops short of 'Callooh! Callay!' though... :-D

Sorry to all you arts afficienadoes but I hate that poem :-P

Its non-sensical and a waste of time....which to some of you would describe my ideological, political ramblings ;-)

I've been debating if I should post some of my favorite lyrics. :-?

O:-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Hush little baby
Don't say a word
And nevermind that noise you heard

It's just the Beast under your bed
In your closet
In your head

Exit light
Enter night

Take my hand
Off to Never Neverland!


The first verse is actually:

Say your prayers little one
Don't forget my son
To include every word

I tuck you in
Warm within
Keep you free from sin
Until the Sandman comes

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
We're off to Never Neverland!

For those who have no clue, it's Enter Sandman by Metallica. :-)
