At everyday poets

My poem, Jab A Hook In, will be featured at Every Day Poets Friday.

It is, ostensively, about fishermen, but it has more to do with having a bit of fun with Deacon Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known to all as Lewis Carroll, and with his wonderful nonsense poem, Jabberwocky.

It was included in from Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, which was published in 1872. You can read the original here.

Whatever else he may have been, the man was a genius with words.
