Silly Little Nonsense Poem
Down in the left hand corner of the world,
beyond the rows of buttersplatch
and gongoliferous trees,
beyond the stirring spoonpools
where the sizals ooze their way
and all the lochs are tightly locked
except on Turtle Day,
'tis there my granny taught me
how to whingel whingels in --
and please to whingel whingels in
before they start to spin.
'Twas when whingelling a whingel
that I almost met my match:
its krox had ripened early
and was hanging off the catch.
With lowered cranial blubberbutt
it came at me like frrruck --
which is whingel for the best of rotten luck.
I jumped a passing songtrain
that the frangle bird had sung
and clung on to the clutchets
(which tell us right from wrong)
'till we got To Pokeham Arrberry
where I watched them ghoul the sun.
And having ghouled the sun they went
and ghouled the blood red ocean espcially for me.

ghoul the sun....cool turn of phrase....this sounds just a hint of seuss-ish...whingle-ing sounds like it could be quite the adventure as well...hope you are well brother...smiles.
A silly, nonsense poem on the surface perhaps but methinks there’s something more serious going on under all the silliness.
I agree with Brian. My brain went to Suess. I enjoyed this a great deal.
Marvellous! Have you been reading Edward Lear recently?
Nice ones, Dave. I am with Janice in thinking your poetry made me think of Edward Lear. I thought of "Jabberwocky." Sometimes nonsense is good!!
Fun to read and then re-read aloud.
What great fun to read! Certainly makes me want to go a' whingeling this afternoon! Oh, frrruck... I have to work....
RIDE that songtrain, my brother D!
You are the best!!! This is crazy delightful.
Delightful and perfectly in Edward Lear's tradition.
I shall now go out and look for a gongoliferous tree Dave - it sounds wonderful and I expect it to be in full flower.
Marvellous. I think this is one of those poems that would benefit from being performed live. Many thanks.
Greetings from London.
I also detected 'Jabberwocky' moments - which made me smile and my heart sing.
Nonsensical? Perhaps. Silly? Decidedly not.
haha. that was remarkable and funny!
Ghouled the sun! Awesome! Lewis Carroll & Dr. Seuss have competition, but neither of them could whingel a whingel, methinks. Great stuff. Thank you.
Fun, Dave! And I see your e-mail and will respond shortly.
I cannot capture well about the each word which is functional for the light verse, but I don't think it's not silly but funny.
This is delightfully hilarious. I got stumped with some of the words. Silliness it isn't! It's most entertaining despite my attempt to understand them fully. Great write Dave!
I would love to hear you read this one, Dave.
It so deserves to be heard as well as read...all those interwoven sounds and meanings initially not quite grasped.
This has kept me occupied for ages. A real brain-expander!:)
Nice post, great blog, following :)
Good Luck :)
Ha, yes, a long time since I read Lear, Dr Seuss or the Jabberwocky, but I used to have great fun reading them to our children, so no surprise if there are a few echoes!
I would love to hear this read aloud to me.
