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!'

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought --
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood a while 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!
Oh 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.

    This poem is stupid, not funny, not creative, not anything! I hate it and I wish I had a giant dumpling so that I could throw it at this poem! I'm so mad at this poem I could suck down an Easter egg faster than a wombat eating slimy fat ugly worm!

    When I first read this poem... I was just so shocked at the intensity of it... Even though you might have a hard time understanding it, it's still so intense! And I had to do an analysis on this poem, and I understood everything so much better and it just hit me like a wave... And I was just so shocked at how awesome it is!
