Hip-Hip Hurray Rat-Race In Surrey (Hari-Heather Syllabic) - Poem by Harindhar Reddy

((Adventure with New Words & Literary Devices))
Bam -
Camels-grumph, foxes-yelp,
Apes-gibber, Zebras-nicker,
Dingoes-bark, mynahs-talk, Humans-shriek,
And Turkeys gobble in the timbers - a lion
Roared, at info-land, alias Varro, zing, bada-bing!

Black thrum-strums
Jazzed at bar, barren,
Far foreign moor; hocus-ho,
Pocus-po! A cat's hoodooed to rat -
Wiz became Zippo, hippo, rhino - razzed with
Crown alien - wriggled in rain acid, Hari-hari!

A rat, trap
A cat, Tick-tack-toe -
Dweebs joshed like bulls in china
Shop, played Mickey as Varro - victim,
Nervous Nelly - newbs went apes, injected
In a pumped-up party - Dhaka-taka-eureka!

Met Varro
Wolves in sheep's clothing -
Rocket-bucketed him - Youth
Coquetted girls - heads-tails couldn't nail - rat
Trapped peddlers passed the buck - None pulled the curtain -
Oompa-Loompa in him drank Mr. Wonka's vita wonk.
