Ginggrabula


 
All hail to the wizened Ginggrabula
His knowledge is almost oracular
To Phalangeridae,
His office, most high
We humans would call him “Lord Chancellor”

Zaffrefraggling


 
Phalangeridae sexual zing
They call it zaffrefraggling
Don’t dare fraggle her zaff
‘Till she tickles your staff—
Or her teeth may clamp down on your thing!

Snooglefingle



Phalangeridae sure love to eat!
Snooglefingle is their favorite treat—
It tastes like banana
and grows in Montana
We humans would think it too sweet.

Fedoodleing



Phalangeridae don’t really sing
Their music, called fedoodleing,
Is more like Scat Jazz
But not as good as
The sounds Ella Fitzgerald could bring!

Snooglefingle

It’s tradition when we mingle,
Those of us you know as ‘single’,
When you do the Snooglefingle.

Though it comes from our home planet,
Which is made of solid granite,
Where we grow the pomegranate.

We are sexual by nature,
Set in stone, our legislature.

So it really makes us tingle,
When we do the Snooglefingle!

Blattingimcam


 
Blattingimcam! War is declared!
Phalangeridae, always prepared
They may not look tough
But don’t dare call their bluff—  
Even mighty Zillons will run scared!

Vindeckularity



They call it their vindeckularity:
Phalangeridae’s self-similarity
The need to conform
To society's norm.
Self-expression could lead to vulgarity!

Sploogenessesity



Phalangeridae keep lots of slaves
Sadly, work ‘till they drop in their graves.
Sploogenessesity states
Just how much their slaves hate
Their Masters, who should be ashamed!

Zaffrefraggling

We love big gems to match our eyes in size.
Dressed to the nines it comes as no surprise,
The Zillon with the biggest golden eyes.

An escort with big eyes ensures a date,
Is most coveted as a coupling mate,
And believed smarter offspring will create.

We’re a species of people where size counts,
A planet where we treasure ev’ry ounce.

The larger we find of the pretty bling,
When we shop we go
Zaffrefraggl’ing!

Fedoodleing

It is the trademark you see,
a product they need
when female aliens
have reeking entrail--iens,
that require some care
in areas "down there."

Their culture, you see,
'tis more formal than we
and ours which we've made
acceptable to degrade
the private cleansings
after our menses.

"Fedoodleing" therefore
is what we know more
commonly as sloshing,
splooshing and washing
by way of devices to make it all clear--
the translation we know, is "douching", my dear.....
