The Gloomius Day
Created by Brenda Li
‘Tis a gloomius day with racshack clouds
The squawkety squacks are chattering loud
And rochety rats are rochiting grounds
Large droplets of glim have floppen around
And breathen is thick with flovenly shtick
Oh gloomius day! Oh hoobahoolay!
My roofer is shmoot with squackity stay
My neater is seater – no, nay, such flay!
Drab droplets of glim have gloomid its rim
I hate this day!
Don’t make it stay!
Make this hoobahoolay dissatoday!
My grampa came in to fixin my skin
Dear robber, don’t fret your dream drobber
The squawkers may stay, but listen-to they!
Such smittering songs of miusfull glamour
The freshen and air is fresher thannaire
Your pupper has jupper and jubilivee
And soon I realize,
Such gloomius day
Is indeed – a gloomius day
Not so hoobahoolay
And so I, the robber, with previous flay
Got out, went out, poppered outside to stay
And so, it goes:
‘Twas a gloomius day with racshack clouds
The squawkety squacks were chattering loud
And rotchety rats were rochiting grounds
Large droplets of glim had floppen around
And breathen was thick with flovenly shtick
And it was a glorious day.
