jellowockey
through the looking glass ... into a colloidal suspension
by rick collins

'Twas bathing, with the slippery toads,
Did gyrate and gamble with some babes;
All whimsy were the buzzcut dwarves,
And mom's wrath the outrage.

Beware the Jello mold, my son!
The nasty stuff, it makes me retch!
Beware the tub of lime, and shun,
The fruit suspended batch!

He took his tablespoon in hand,
Long time the maximum dose he sought.
So pestered he by some Dumdum flea,
And scratched his butt and thought.

And as he burped and tasted food,
The Jello mold with jiggling lime,
Came screaming,"Eat me! I taste good!"
And trailing Jello slime.

One, two! One, two! And through, and through,
The table spoon went fro and back!
He left it melting, and with its fruit,
He had a little snack.

And hast thou slain the Jello mold?
Some mess you made, for a squeamish boy!
"Oh, fajitas day! Calgon! Oil of Olay!"
He choked on his Almond Joy.

'Twas bathing, with the slippery toads,
Did gyrate and gamble with some babes;
All whimsy were the buzzcut dwarves,
And mom's wrath the outrage.


ABOUT RICK COLLINS

Jesus hunts me with his bow. For his sherpa told me so. He pulls back the tight bow string. And shoots an arrow through my brain. Yes, Jesus hunts me. Yes, Jesus hunts me. Yes, Jesus hunts me. His sherpa told me so.

Hmmm...making gibberish from gibberish. Nice.

I remember getting the Apple Newton's interperetation of the Jabberwocky ("Tablespoon") and being especially pleased with "Oh fabulous day! Cartoon! Cathay!"

"Cartoon! Cathay!" has got nothing on "shun the fruit suspended batch." This could be part of a whole poetry parody series on food, with, say, "Charge of the Lite Mayonnaise" and "The Rape of the Lox."

Harry carved a Christmas ham;
Its glaze was wine and sloe. And every time he took a bite;
He thought, "Hey, this shit blows."

To the right of the chestnuts she tore through the booze.
Every word she was slurring; grandma's damn rum mousse.

"Hey yo! Want Spam on rye at luncheon break? / I warn you now, 'twas sitting in the sun / Away, dear one, and pitch this nasty food / For it already sickens me with grief / That someone made this, then left suddenly." - Kevin Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet Hang Out and Stuff
