TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY JABBERWOCKY

      What! Hast thou slain the Jabberwock?

Then get thee hence, thou slithy lout!

O, what a pity! Such a shock,

For now the Jabberwock’s wiped out.

 

When dealing with endangered creatures

We should wield not swords but pens,

And shoot their unappealing features

Only through a camera lens.

 

So leave the Jubjub on her nest,

And keep the Tumtum boughs unkinked;

Let weary Bandersnatches rest,

Lest all these life-forms come extinct.
