There’s no scariest monster

Than the one inside yourself.

Theme: Poetry


«’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 hast 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.»

Oh man! Well done. Good poem and image to match.

"The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!" Some of the best words ever written. Excellent portrayal of what, I'm sure, we all feel at one time or another. :)

Clearly you struck the right note to illustrate this marvelous poem. What a delight to read it again; such palpable words to read aloud and let roll off the tongue! Bravo!

@summerfield it takes a whole life to learn that, after all, he’s harmless... thank you!
@taffy thank you! I needed more time and a different background maybe, but one must make do with the things at hand...
@northy I love all in Lewis Carroll’s “Alice” books. I believe the second is a psychology manual! Thanks a lot.
