The Voice of the Lobster

'Tis the voice of the lobster; I heard him declare,

'You have baked me too brown, I must sugar my hair.'

As a duck with its eyelids, so he with his nose

Trims his belt and his buttons, and turns out his toes.

When the sands are all dry, he is gay as a lark,

And will talk in contemptuous tones of the Shark:

But, when the tide rises and sharks are around,

His voice has a timid and tremulous sound.

Lewis Carroll
[Charles Lutwidge Dodgson]  (1832-1898)
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland



The Queen of Hearts, she made some tarts,

All on a summer day:

The Knave of Hearts, he stole those tarts,

And took them quite away!

Lewis Carroll
[Charles Lutwidge Dodgson]  (1832-1898)
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
