Jabberwocky Redux

Jabberwocky Redux After reading too much Aquinas Would an aphid reside in an onager’s ear if the onager’s master spoke Twi? Or a Gascony scop with a leper elope if a civet leapt out of a tree? You doubt it? Read Thomas and see. Would an addax in Denmark gyrate if an emu in Sweden bore freight? Or an eland in Chile complain if jerboas in Goa refrain? You doubt it? Read Thomas and see. For really I thought ‘twas the onager taught the aphid the tenor of Twi, and that Gascony scops with Norwegians eloped when Danes had lepers to tea. You doubt it? Read Thomas and see. Donal Mahoney
