THE BARRISTER'S DREAM.
63
He dreamed that he stood in a shadowy Court, Where the Snark, with a glass in its eye,
Dressed in gown, bands, and wig, was defending a pig On the charge of deserting its sty.
The Witnesses proved, without error or flaw, . That the sty was deserted when found : And the Judge kept explaining the state of the law In a soft under-current of sound,
The indictment had never been clearly expressed, And it seemed that the Snark had begun,
And had spoken three hours, before any one-guessed What the pig was supposed to have done.
