Marginally Really Awful

The prompt for Day Twenty-Four of GloPoWriMo is, entertainingly:

Marginalia of medieval manuscripts

Can run from the bizarre to the obscene,

The production of such work by cloistered nondescripts

Show minds that go where they have never been!

They do like to have strange animals ride stranger ones,

And rabbits cutting people into bits,

Anatomically they venture forth where danger runs,

Depicting things that send prudes into fits,

But they hope nobody much is going to notice them,

And are too busy making out each word,

While the ones who spot a naughty rabbit show, ‘tis them

Who will conjecture, ‘Cannot be; absurd!’

Some are cute: it could be that the artist Tenniel

Found inspiration in these drawings clear,

There must be a source of insight quite perennial

For Jabberwock or March Hare to appear.
