Splodget Dire!

"Oh Splodget dire!"

Gangled the widget king.

"Nor bladget in the scrumshire heap."

And splodget did it, twice.

"Oh cumble wire, the holy dunk

And stink the wembling gab

By the goobly mire."

And so it was.

"Woe by woe did it all

Grumbly dug, then scrimbly

Did it wimble."


"Yea and yea again did it

All crumbly go - once thrug,

Twice thrug and so-and-so."

The wind did struggle and

So ended the gumbly-gumbly.

Then down on the shrodget

Sat the king again.
