Nonsense poem following Jabberwocky

Jubjub Bird

In a meaky village (meaky – mealy and meeky)

Two girls were chanting clear

“we will catch the Jubjub Bird

and keep it as a tanion.” (tanion – tame campanion)

“Haha” cried the villagers

“Your not even men.”

With that they set off

Angrily to prove they’re righpion. (rightful champion)

Through the silent jungle

They made their way

To Tumtum tree and waited

For it to dinion. (reunion with dinner)

When at last it came

It fell into their trap

It wiggled to no avail

So home they went in quickion. ( as quick as you say million)

In a meaky village

Two girls were chanting clear

“we caught the Jubjub Bird

and will keep it as a tanion.”

    • I have not heard of Edward Lear and Spike Milligan. What poems do they write about? I will find more on them.

      I like poem because they have a beat to it like a song. It is easy to read and memorised. So far I have memorised – The Charge of the Light Brigade, Leisure, Daffodills and I am currently working on The Listeners.

      I enjoyed making up words if only spellings are so easy.
