11. The Foul Dwimmerlaik

With apologies to Dwim, who is only foul when she's heaving nuzgûls.

The Foul Dwimmerlaik:
Our Dwimordene thinks she's so clever
in attempting those nuzgûl to sever
their attatchment to her;
but they answer, "No, sir!
We belong to you, now and forever!"

A purveyor, by name Dwimordene
said "Buy my pets-sight unseen;
they're cuddly and cute,
fanged and hirsute,
And when hungry, exceptionally mean.

Dwim, who fine nuzgûl did purvey,
plied her trade on the list at HA.
Sharpening fangs with a file,
she gloated the while,
"Forty bites for Memorial Day!"

From the keys of Dwim's precious laptop,
beasts and nuzgûl continue to hop;
but now she’s been bitten,
by limericks smitten.
She’s pleading, “Somebody stop me… please, stop!”
