He would joke with hyaenas, returning their stare
With an impudent wag of the head :
And he once went a walk, paw-in-paw, with a bear,
" Just to keep up its spirits," he said.
He came as a Baker: but owned, when too late— And it drove the poor Bellman half-mad—
He could only bake Bridecake------for which, I
may state, No materials were to be had.
The last of the crew needs especial remark, Though he looked an incredible dunce :
He had just one idea------but, that one being
" Snark," The good Bellman engaged him at once.
