"Jaybirdwocky" or "An Ode to Jay"

`Twas ought-five, and the Laxpower fans
Did cheer and grumble on the Net.
All gloomy was the Swami,
And the NC-two-A wouldn't allow a bet.

"Beware the Cavaliers, my son!
The Wards that bite, the Kips that catch!
Beware the Blue Devil team, and shun
The frumious Matt Zash!"

They took their off-set heads in hand:
Long time the ACC foes they sought --
So rested in the PJ's Pub,
And drank a beer in thought.

And, as in uffish thought they stood,
The Blue Devil team, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the Lincoln Field,
And burbled as they came!

One, two! (We want more!) And through and through
The off-set heads went snicker-snack!
They left them dead, and with their heads
They went galumphing back.

"And, has thou slain the Blue Devil team?
Come to my arms, my beamish boys!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Kyle-lay!'
He chortled in his joy.

Twas ought-five, and the Laxpower fans
Did cheer and grumble on the Net.
All gloomy was the Swami
and the NC-two-A wouldn't allow a bet.

(with apologies to Lewis Carroll (il miglior fabbro))
