Jabberchocky, w/ apologies to Mr Carroll (poetry)

'Twas brillig, and the slivered trolls
Did cast their nuts into the fray;
All fragrant were the minty cremes,
And their chocolate coats arrayed.

"Beware the Double Dutch, my son!
The fudge that bites, the kisses catch!
Beware the JuJuBees, and shun
The frumious Kaffeeklatsch!"

He took his vorpal fork in hand:
Long time the manxome cake he sought--
So rested he by the Cacao tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And as in insulin shock he stood,
The Double Dutch, like sweet-toothed flame,
Came whiffling through the truffled wood,
And bubbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! and through and through
The vorpal fork speared Snickers-snacks!
He left it, fed, and with no dread
He went gabelching back.

"And hast thou ate the Double Dutch?
Come to my arms, my broad-across-the-beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Mars bars! Parfait!"
He chortled in his joy.

'Twas brillig, and the slivered trolls
Did cast their nuts into the fray;
All fragrant were the minty cremes,
And their chocolate coats arrayed.

Apologies to L. Carroll & Jabberwocky
