(A sensical poem inspired by Jabberwocky)
‘Twas bleak and my slimy foes
Did gain throughout the game
So flimsy were my teammates’ throws
At last, only I remained.
“Beware the dodgeballs and run!
Don’t lose your fight and make the catch!
Watch out for Eric Anderson—
He’ll try to finish out the match!”
I took the red ball in hand
One against five I fought.
And while my ousted teammates cheered
One—two—three balls I caught.
One against two is how it stood
And Anderson with eyes of flame
Came charging over the shiny wood
And snarled, hissed, and aimed.
One-two, one-two I ducked and threw—
My red ball made a smack.
I had hit his head so hard and firm
He landed squarely on his back.
Finally, it was one on one
And my teammates cheered with joy:
“Way to play! Hooray Hooray!
You’re the miracle dodgeball boy”
‘Twas bleak yet my slimy foes
Did fall before my aim.
But so flimsy was my final throw
It was caught —I’d lost the game.
