Beware The Jabberwocky!

'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!"
I'm not having a good day.


  1. No need to admit that my English isn't that good.

    I'm sorry to hear that you're not having a good day. Hope everything gets better with you soon. *hugs*

  2. Well, I am sorry for that. Still, I do find that Lewis Carroll is an excellent way to get through a trying day, for which congratulations.

    Next to Alice's, our own problems, through deeply annoying, are at least not likely to involve plummeting to the center of the earth or trying to play croquet with flamingos...

  3. Muscato! If my bad day and the Jabberwocky triggered a response from non other than the famous Muscato, then I am FLATTERED and shall celebrate!

    Non-Crowned Princess, if you've heard Michael Jackson's 'Thriller', the end of the song is that deep voice saying 'Grizzly Ghouls are closing in to seal your doom...etc,etc'...

    You have to read the Jabberwocky poem in that kind of voice/tone. Type in Jabberwocky in Google and read the whole poem out loud. It'll make you smile. Cheers!

  4. I love the Jabberwocky, a poem best suited to dark and stormy nights
