Every other line of the poem is indented. The poem features punctuation, too.
The structure of this poem contradicts the overall childish, imaginative mood, yet it has a purposeful existence since it reminds you that not everything is all make-believe. When the "son" slashes the Jabberwocky's head he describes the sound as "snicker-snack," thus adding to the general understanding of what killing the Jabberwocky is like. Alliteration Adds to childish-feel trying to be established, example: "beamish boy" End Rhyme It occurs in every stanza, helping to create flow. Wikipedia
