My Word, How Really Awful

A word from a poem should give rise to something written for GloPoWriMo Day 29 the first and most distinctive one I thought of was Jabberwock but I cant labour that again completely. Ill just bounce between Shakespeare, Carroll, and Colonialist

When William Shakespeare
invented a word,
What happened I fear
Was rather absurd;
Becoming part of
(So, that, the start of
Word critic would be.) 

Lewis Carroll, though
Discovered the trick
Of making-up so
The words would all stick
As his invention,
(Toves; raths; all will know,
As every mention
Galumphing may go.) 

This, I will attempt
A smelf with a plong?
To improve his scent
Takes stonkter along.
And when his well-health
Becomerings bad
A pilbroke makes wealth
From this surry lad. 

A snoozesack he buys
From a slumbersmiff
Want a ploh, he cries,
Snoozesack to go wiff!
Whats this that I hear
You screechfully say?
Just you dish a peer,
And then steigh aweigh!

    Making up words is a fun game played best with friends.

    I love making up words and do it all the time . . . of course, mine don’t stick; I think it’s because I’m slightly less read than them other guys you mention.
