A satirical examination of Britain at the outbreak of World War II by means of a series of fun verses, including a Jabberwocky parody:
‘Twas Danzig, and the Swastikoves
Did Heil and Hittle in the Reich
All Nazi were the Lindengroves
And the Neurat Jewstreich.
Beware the Grabberwock, my Son
The Plans that spawn, the Plots that hatch,
Beware the JewJew Bird, and shun
The führious Bundesnatch.
He took his Aryan Horde in Hand
Long Time the Gestapo He taught
Then rested He by the Baltic Sea
And stood awhile in Thought.
