THE BISCUIT TREE

The Biscuit Tree:
This remarkable vegetable production has never yet been described or delineated. As it never grows near rivers, nor near the sea, nor near mountains, or vallies, or houses, - its native place is wholly uncertain.

When the flowers fall off, and the tree breaks out in biscuits, the effect is by no means disagreeable, especially to the hungry.

If the Biscuits grow in pairs, they do not grow single, and if they ever fall off, they cannot be said to remain on.

Edward Lear: English artist, writer; known for his 'literary nonsense' & limericks  (1812-1888) 'Nonsense Trees'
