How to write a nonsense poem

How to write a nonsense poem,
why that is very simple
prep time more cooking time less
just sit under an oak tree which gives five mangoes in a year
ask a wolf squirrel  to fly away to the gibberish land
and bring you some air
get some giberdiber ink from a cactus with marigold flowers from nearby
and you are all set to go
here is one i wrote after i followed every thing i just told
and oh don’t forget to sip on a lovely coffee
made specially from banana leafs
up in the mountains floating in the air
lived the fun loving monkey bears
they talked gibberish and sang nonsense
and used ‘ehoy’ in every sentence
how silly their elephant heads and nose like a pea
braving the thunder but scared of the fleas
up in that mountain lived a rabbit lion too
roared like a mosquito and ran like a dondoo
he ruled the monkey bears for thousand years
and then one day he just disappeared
what a relief ehoy- said one monkey bear
 ehoy he now rules the shark toys of black sea-said another loud and clear
 ehoy ehoy all of you -said the third monkey bear named slime,
let us fold the sea while there is still time
and ehoy let the rabbit lion be prisoner of waves and crave for lime
and so they did
Monkey bears now live on clouds of drun
with all the ehoy and fun
Rabbit lion is still trapped in the waves of black sea
and he is the one making the sea water taste so sweet
