    Seven sacred salamanders salivating odd,

    Quick, flick hair dander, and stop their gander,

    Watching weasels pop the curious cod!


    Forty foolish fireflies flashing all in sync

    Wish they’d please, clear off gnu’s knees

    Before octopus oozes ink!


    How did this party animal so quickly come unravel

    I really, truely want to know

    Did kangaroo plop poopy on cute koala’s kewpie gravel?


    One hundred hungry horses hide their pride

    For their fat flatulent fly collection

    They swear their hair, simply ne’er, needs government inspection!


    The TSA padding down the pig pile’s purple plastic pack

    Sheepishly, bleet the lack of terrorist propaganda

    But gorilla guard just gruffly grunts,”Go groping through Uganda!”


    I wish the Washugel white-tail whip-poor-wills

    Would stop their idie chatter

    And stifle jesting jackals’ Jills, it’s not a laughing matter.


    The outboard’s whaletail’s wearing wolverines 

    Precluding all proper anti-cavitation 

    Let me make bedtime scurry, before the hell hounds hurry

    After another furry fox tale hallucination!

    The wordslinging and alliteration here is clever and curious, yet I loved reading every line as with this genre poem we read with baited breath. ginga



    I was playing with my lips, letting air escape their relaxed state. Out of the lolling, came forth an unknown tongue that occasionally sounded familiar. Harv

    Hampton commented on Gibberdelish


    In the tradition of "Peter Piper picked...." you have created a tongue twister for the ages. The title is appropriate. Love it.



    Like a sliding number puzzle, sometimes it is fun to play with words without really doing much with them at all except make them sound good together. Oh - watt - tug - goo - Siam! Or something like that! LOL Harv

    Once again, beneath the amusing gibberish, I sense profound commentary - well done - but then "jabberwocky" wasn't all nonsense either. Love it! 10



    I remember how no one else laughs as seriously as you. Harv

    carynontherhine commented on Gibberdelish


    Once more your talent runs wild, like those horses one hundred hungry ones. And after all, a hallucination! How you do it is beyond me, the tales you give us are nothing less then memorable pieces of art. Hugz



    "i need a pig," said the Queen of hearts. Don't try to make any sense of htis, it is just a line that didn't make it into gibberdelish. Something about plagerism . . . Harv

    Poetry is what is lost in translation.
