The Mouse's Tale

Lewis Carroll (1832-1898)

Fury said to a mouse,
     That he met in the
            house, 'Let us
               both go to law:
                I will prosecute
              you.-- Come, I'll
             take no denial;
           We must have
         a trial: For
       really this
     morning I've
   nothing to do.'
       Said the mouse
             to the cur,
               'Such a trial,
                  dear Sir, With
                      no jury or
                    judge, would
                   be wasting
               our breath.'
            'I'll be
       judge, I'll
     be jury,'
   Said cunning
 old Fury:
    'I'll try
      the whole
        cause, and
            condemn
                you
                  to
                   death.'
