Extraordinary Nonsense

Writing nonsense. It’s harder than you’d think. I know because I’ve tried.

One of the “extraordinary activities” in My Name is Mina is to write page of nonsense. This, I thought, I have to try. Here’s what I came up with:

Da schmergle wibbeth da flibberty raith und sminketh da postil off been
Und dan da schmergle bid sloweth da renchy und mayest da schmergle haff been
Da raith haff wendling bid main od ramith
Und dan da wendling mid wain
Ock oh! Ock oh! Ock oh!
Da wendling weepilst!
Da wendling weepilst!
Oh waif dan wendling bist reem?

Und dan da schmergle elfin da raith
Und wendling smid loffest ab leen
Ock way! Ock way! Ock way!
Da wendling smilfest!
Da wendling smilfest!
Da wendling smilfest bist leem
