Poem: “In Waukesha Wisconsin. ” Book: Don’t Bump the Glump In Waukesha Wisconsin. You take quite a risk. Whenever you go to the movies, For there in the dark lurks the double toed Vark And the man-eating Scale-Faced Scoovies. There are gobbled eye ghorks And slimy tailed Borks And Hunchlings, and Broggy-Beaked Byzes And Gumboons and grobs and globamabobs And Creelzies of various sizes. There are bony-backed Bleakes And razor toothed kleeks And wailes and glumpaching gorkle, And the shivery shrieks from the gaitering geeks Are worse than the snort of the Snorkle. There are Glumgurds and Speem, And the Grizimy’s scream May awaken the foul-tempered Fisk And the scale faced Scoovies that dwell in the movies Right here in Waukesha Wisconsin.
