"’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." Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll

Who Hath Slain The Jabberwock?

Indeed, father! The Jabberwock is nigh! I’ll go with my vorpal sword, his head will be no more and slay him down, will I! I’ll meet him in the tugley wood by the Bandersnatch domain. I’ll wait for him on the edge, for his head, I’ll come to claim.

I have slain the Jabberwock, his body will decay! Let’s all meet by the Tumtum tree and rejoice this frabjous day! The slithy toves and mome raths all now well understood. ’Twas brillig, it was Indeed, for it ended as it should.
