I wrote an epic-length, narrative tongue-twister, inspired by Carroll works such as the Hunting of the Snark and the Alice tales. It's illustrated, even... =0) As a bonus (to my mind) it includes a parody/satire of Twitter.
Congrats, quite a production! And quite a (gentle) poke in the snoot of Stephen Fry and his tw-ilk.
I suggest you further Carrolify your verse by adopting the Snarkian Alexandrine form, in which you have seven lines of six feet each, anaepestic of course and each tenth line entirely alliterative in the so-called Boojumic Mode, ie. the letter B … each stanza also ending with a refrain of 7 coats and 3 pairs of boots.
