Day 25: NaPoWriMo


‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Their heads are green,
and their hands are blue,
and they went to sea in a sieve.
Laying eggs inside a paper bag,
the reason you will no doubt see,
to keep the lightning out, all mimsy
were the borogoves.

  6. “Life what is it but a dream”…that was the line I repeated in my high school’s production of Alice. And I had images of MacBeth’s weird sisters as well. Very cool.
