I could not kill the Jabberwock.

Lighter than air he came away
Even though the burrows black
Went squelching night and day
I stabbed him once, and kilazack
Soon ended my foray.

Could not the Jubjub help us now?
All through the storm his moulted cry
Ran across the winded stow
Razor thin the piercing nigh
Only stayed the beast for how
Long the night and long the day
Long my arm did give away.

I could not kill the Jabberwock.
