    “Beware the Jabberwock my son!

    The jaws that bite, the claws that snatch

    Beware the Jubjub bird and shun

    The frumious Bandersnatch.”

    He took his vorpal sword in hand,

    Long time the manxsome foe he sought

    Till 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 tulgy wood

    And burbled as it came!

    One, two! One, two! And through and through

    His vorpal blade went snicker-snack,

    He left it dead and with its head

    He went galumphing back.

    “And hast though slain the Jabberwock?

    Come to my arms my beamish boy!

    Oh frabjous day! Caloo calay!”

    He chortled in his joy.

    Twas brillig and the slithy toves

    Did gyre and gimble in the wabe

    All mimsy were the borogroves

    And the mome raths outgrabe.

    The moon was shining sulkily,

    Because she thought the sun

    Had got no business to be there

    After the day was done –

    ‘It’s very rude of him,’ she said,

    ‘To come and spoil the fun!’

    They went to sea in a Sieve, they did,

    In a Sieve they went to sea:

    In spite of all their friends could say,

    On a winter’s morn, on a stormy day,

    In a Sieve they went to sea!

    And when the Sieve turned round and round,

    And every one cried, ‘You’ll all be drowned!’

    They called aloud, ‘Our Sieve ain’t big,

    But we don’t care a button! we don’t care a fig!

    In a Sieve we’ll go to sea!

    Far and few, far and few,

    Are the lands where the Jumblies live;

    Their heads are green, and their hands are blue,

    And they went to sea in a Sieve.

    ‘The time has come,’ the Walrus said,

    ‘To talk of many things:

    Of shoes — and ships — and sealing wax —

    Of cabbages — and kings —

    And why the sea is boiling hot —

    And whether pigs have wings.’

    From the ashes a fire shall be woken,

    A light from the shadows shall spring;

    Renewed shall be blade that was broken,

    The crownless again shall be king.

    “A loaf of bread,” the Walrus said,

    “Is what we chiefly need:

    Pepper and vinegar besides

    Are very good indeed–

    Now if you’re ready, Oysters dear,

    We can begin to feed.”

    “But not on us!” the Oysters cried,

    Turning a little blue.

    “After such kindness, that would be

    A dismal thing to do!”

    “The night is fine,” the Walrus said.

    “Do you admire the view?

    “It was so kind of you to come!

    And you are very nice!”

    The Carpenter said nothing but

    “Cut us another slice:

    I wish you were not quite so deaf–

    I’ve had to ask you twice!”

    “It seems a shame,” the Walrus said,

    “To play them such a trick,

    After we’ve brought them out so far,

    And made them trot so quick!”

    The Carpenter said nothing but

    “The butter’s spread too thick!”

    “I weep for you,” the Walrus said:

    “I deeply sympathize.”

    With sobs and tears he sorted out

    Those of the largest size,

    Holding his pocket-handkerchief

    Before his streaming eyes.

    “O Oysters,” said the Carpenter,

    “You’ve had a pleasant run!

    Shall we be trotting home again?’

    But answer came there none–

    And this was scarcely odd, because

    They’d eaten every one.

    Who cares?! In the end, we’re gonna be redeemed anyway, move to E”Y, bask in G-d’s Glory, learn torah with the deepest of pleasures and wisdom, have world peace, illness deseases and sickness will be a thing of the past, be in the company of the greatest spiritual giants ever, have eternal happiness and bliss, and have zero worries to distract us from all this.

    Oh, and no cellphones.

    Luna: Have you ever read anything by Terry Pratchett? (Answer once someone has posted after this post so as to make your response random. ^_^)
