Brilig Place Episode 16 - Tantrum

A wailing child with gnashing teeth is not a pretty sight.
The words writ large around her neck – “Beware this Brilig bites !”
What metamorphosis is this that takes a form so slight
Transmogrifies it to an evil creature of the night ?

So please take heed, do not proceed to cross her angry path
Let’s calm her down with camomile, let’s run her a warm bath.
Let’s read her chapter one of Dr Spock to make her laugh
Break out the Ovaltine and tell her stories by the hearth.

The hour’s past, the dye is cast she’s heading for an ASBO
The neighbour’s cat ? She petted that (now buried under patio)
She's in a rage and centre stage, she won't settle for a cameo
So spike her gin with Ritalin and remove the orange Haribo
