Yet Another Week That Was…

The Jumblies came for a visit…

In spite of all their friends could say,
On a winter’s morn, on a stormy day;

They went to see in a sieve, they did,
In a sieve they went to sea;

They plotted and planned for a year and a day,
And where they were going they couldn’t quite say.

They read some books,
And organized cooks;

They fixed their bike, they did repair;
In the hopes that they wouldn’t get lost anywhere.

And every one said, who saw them go,
‘O won’t they be soon upset, you know!

They whistled and warbled a moony song,
To the echoing sound of the supper gong.

And they drank their health with pea green soup,
The little ones quickly got covered in gloop.

So to keep them dry, they wrapped there feet,
In pinky paper all folded neat;

And a friend returned from traveling abroad,
And she bought some coffee and candy treats,
While they should’ve been schooling on their seats.

They packed some money,
Stocked up on honey;

They took a scribe,
To observe the tribe;

And everyone said, “How tall they’ve grown!”
For they’ve been to Lake, and the Torrible Zone,
And the hills of the Chankly Bore!”

Far and few, far and few,
Are the lands where the Jumblies live;
Their heads are green, and their hands are blue,
And they went to sea in a sieve.
