The Hunting of the Snarke

The Hunting of the Snarke
—for Lewis Carroll

“You must have been
a beautiful paralegal—
You must have been a
pretty periwigged pussy…”
—“You Must Have Been A Beautiful Baby”

Another Jabberwocky demented fugue—
Based on a Barrister’s snarky dream I once had:

In the midst of opining a preeminent brief—
Based on a snarky louche Lolita chick-lit tidbit

Where I got to serve as Judge and Jury—
For the infamous Humbert “Hum-job” Humbert

Serving as his Counsel for the Defense—
Besides finding the Verdict and Passing Sentence

Thus in my dream the beamish badboy Boojum—
Came frumiously galumphing into Snarkhood

But in the midst of his laughter and glee—
In the midst of the story he was trying to tell

He had softly and suddenly vanished away—
For the Snarke was a Boojum, you see.
