		The Jabberwock is Back 
	The elfkin, eyes 'agleam, begins: 
	    "Oh, earthy, she has found us out: 
	Oh, my... Oh, my, the Jabberwock is here; 
	     the twitter glitter of his smile, 
	the fish and frogs know well, 
	     he is the glamor wizard of this tale: 
	O do not fear the whimsy king, 
	     the little elves and wights believe 
	that nonsense is the way to sense 
	     for those poor souls lost in this dream: 
	the laughter belly woes of life, in light, 
	     bewail the fall of stars before the sundered night 
	of this fell twillig rath to score; 
	     his measured eye doth find us 
	all within the darksom light, you know: 
	     and if you see the Juju bird, 
	and that fell sprite, the Bandersnatch, 
	     then know the Jabberwocky is not far behind; 
	so gather all your children, dearies, 
	    and to the hills ye fly: bye, and bye; 
	for if he catches you below the Tum Tum tree, 
	    he might just with his vorpal sword 
	snatch thee, dark and light, all failing; 
	    but know, my friends, the secret Art of Laughter 
	cures us from this snicker wicked villain, Jabberwocky: 
	    and if you know the secret words, 
	to turn this fiend to green, green unseelie gleams, 
	    then he will never touch your life 
	if you be true to your own Troth in deed and trust of Light!
