rumisong Posted May 20, 2009 Share Posted May 20, 2009 this is the outcome of one of my "sentences that make no sense" exercises... and as I was doing it (the day after Christmas here in the US) I found myself trying to give it a "Jabberwocky" sort of voice... I don't know much at all about Jabberwocky- Ive not really read anything about it- I have read the poem with others... and that memory was there as I did my "make no sense" exercise... I have to say, I kind of like the way this came out- so Im posting it here as a "work"... I have NO IDEA what most of these words mean, were meant to mean, might mean... just making them up so that they sound fun, and so that they MIGHT have some relation to something else in the poem that came before... so, I wouldn't bother looking up any unfamiliar words- there's a bunch that simply do not exist but here, or that are used in a very wrong way... but damn, it was fun to do... "Lets Broaf!" the Hingmen cried, "and slate with fine lament!" So off to Crackotu they plied, to pray for Brove'sament "Hingman one and Hingman all" became their dearest voor- should any Hingman clay his fall, the rest will clamor shoor "Het ses be'drue?" did once the Graf, ahear upon his vow- whence should the sons of Flaavux cry and wholestead beads allow "They come with might and verify, their Wharshipway smight deem- if any Hing can feel his groat, let Wharflung bade his dream" Dutybrung and flimeybound the Graffight fraked with blaught- should Hingkind well the Wharflown way, havocious cringe distraught "Spirick well and flayr thee not- we havyet forn the blade- Once these Gringkund savankplots have eat of our hurrade!" Thorey means and duty broughs were every Grafs huuroh - but on this dor the Grings flyrwund, allay the Graf shour woe Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
