Nonsense poetry

Nonsense poetry is a genre of poetry where the verses don't appear to make much sense. They may use made-up words adjusted to the grammar rules of a language or they can just describe illogical scenarios.
In this way the poem focuses more on the sound and prompts the reader to interpret the poem in their own way, trying to make them find a sense to the nonsensical.
