Mouse Tail
‘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.”’
Lewis Carroll
