For the uninitiated.
"Twas brillig and the slithy toves,
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe.
All mimsy were the borrogoves
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 frumius bandersnatch.
He took his vorpal blade 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 wiffling 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 it's head
he came galumphing back.
and hast though slain the jaberwock?
come to my arms my beamish boy!
Calloo! callay! oh frabjous day!
he chortled in his joy.
Twas brillig and the slithy toves
did gyre and gimble in the wabe
all mimsy were the borrogoves
and the mome raths outgrabe.
