As I woke this morn on a warm springy bed,
On a fluffy cloud I stretched arms and legs.
Before a strange thought entered my head,
So I looked at my tablets this is what it said.
How to catch a Flummox.
First you have to flummox a Flummox,
To catch a Flummox by catching.
A side winding snail Who often stays hidden,
Underneath not on a crocodilians tail.
If you've got the metal you also need a petal,
That often gets caught on one of it's scales.
Catching a Flummox is as hard,
As catching a grump in a thrump.
If you've been taught very well,
You'll also need a tree dwelling snell.
That lives in a moss covered tree,
On lord luv a ducks land.
First you have to harken to a snarken,
If you're lucky she may lend you a hand.
You may find of course not inclusive,
An eaglets nest from which you'll
Need a feather that's quite conclusive.
A snarken is female a snigger is male.
Never tell a snigger you need a snarken,
If you do he'll run into a rift of a rage.
He'll fight for her in all types of weather,
You'll never win of course unless.
You decide to knock him down,
With an eaglets feather.
Only a quarter through the story,
Decided to go out for brunch.
A Flummox asked if she could,
Sit at my table as she'd ordered lunch.
I told her what I'd just read, she asked.
"Have you got to the bit that states,
You can only catch a Flummox;
Whilst it's taking a bath".
With that she started to laugh,
Or the bit that says;
A Flummox has to be wearing a mask.
The easiest way to get a Flummox,
She explained is simply just to ask.
Have you read on the last page,
It says: written by a Flummox.
With all those crazy thoughts,
Traveling around my empty head.
I decided it was time to climb
Aboard, A fluffy cloud and
Simple go back to bed.
