The Jabberwocky (sort of)

Lewis Carroll's version

Spellchecker's version

'Twas brillig and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
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 frumious Bandersnatch!"

He took his vorpal sword 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 whiffling 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 its head
He went galumphing back.

"And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O Frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
He chortled in his joy.

'Twas brillig and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

'Tweaks brim and the sliver tows
Did gyro and gimmick in the wack:
All the mince were the boroughs,
And the moment ratifications outgrow.

"Beware the jack, my son!
The jaws that bite the claws that catch!
Beware the judge bird and shun
The frustrates bandit!"

He took his vortex sword in hand:
Long time the many foe he sought --
So rested he by the tumult tree,
And stood a while in thought.

And as in ugliest thought he stood,
The jack with eyes of flame,
Came whiling through the tumble wood,
And burdened as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vortex blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galvanizing back.

"And haste though slain the jack?
Come to my arms, my bean boy!
Oh fractions day! Callous! Caller!"
He chortled in his joy.

'Tweaks brim and the sliver rows
Did gyro and gimmick in the wack:
All the mince were the boroughs,
And the moment ratifications outgrow.
