The Flipsical

(A nonsense rhyme)

The Flipsical went smarkling along the drivly marled.
It couldn't keep is smidgens on because they were so twarled.
It murkined this way and then that, and jimped the stippins higher
And then it flipped all quangly-goo  in a situation dire.
With one leg round the zittering pole and the other all akimbo
It's mifties pinched its grobbin wags! He really was in limbo!
'Hang plonky!' cried it's friend the Squamp 'Then do a little snoff!
If you really do that hard enough I'm sure that they'll fall off!'
And, sure, enough, the smidgens fell, but they landed in a clest
And so the Flipsical walked home clad only in its vest!

I tried to leave a comment on your bench and leaves photo but couldn't so I'm writing here that I didn't realize you don't have an autumn like we do in Canada. I'm surprised!

I enjoyed your nonsense rhyme.

Hey Brenda ,
I am going to go WOW again besides doing some LOLing.
Your nonsense poem is ten notches higher than any poem I have read till date. This is way up there, according to me right besides Lewis Carrol's Jabberwocky..
