Poem of the Moment

Dug up from the ever-expanding internet junkyard, with expectations that this new year will doubtless be as full of  nonsense as the one just passed (if not fuller)–“Jabberwocky” by Lewis Carroll. Or “Jabberwocky Classic,” as Lynn Gold, the perpetrator of Lynn Gold’s Archives, puts it with tongue doubtless firmly in cheek, comparing Carroll’s classic account of a battle with frumious creatures in the tulgey wood with  some of the slightly more frightening nonsense produced by sieving the text of the poem through the rough fingers of two different digital convenience technologies (Apple Newton and FrameMaker).

Have a happy. But beware of burbling and have your vorpal sword close at hand.
