Poetry & Prose

All philosophies, if you ride them home, are nonsense, but some are greater nonsense than others.

He parked the car beside a tree
And gave to her a candolee
It was too big to rye abar
So they left it in the car.

They quickly walked alay the tam
Till they sint a certonam.
Bollery to waddner say
Rander in the passageway.

Both betracted plendarall
Just to have it undo fall.
Wilson din outour for them
Fender puffindary rem.

When she gander dander knop
He wandered berry airy top.
Winchell waver lary rain
Dupligaging ray dermain.

NONSENSE POETRY—Similar to and generally confused with abstract poetry but less bizarre and surreal, often involves rhythm and rhyme generated by made-up words and sounds, can take other poetic forms and involve unrelated words and phrases. Some nonsense poems are also abstract poems.
