The Mouse’s Tail

   “Fury said 
       to a mouse, That 
                 he met in the
                     house, 'Let 
                         us both go 
                             to law: I 
                                will prose-
                                    cute you.— 
                                 Come, I'll
                              take no de-
                          nial; We 
                     must have
                 the trial; 
            For really 
        this morn-
   ing I’ve
nothing 
to do.'
 Said the 
     mouse to 
        the cur.
             'Such a 
                trial, dear 
                    Sir. With
                         no jury 
                             or judge, 
                                 would
                               be wast-
                            ing our 
                         breath.'
                     'I'll be
                   judge, 
              I’ll be 
           jury,'
       said 
   cun-
   ning
     old 
         Fury:
           'I'll 
             try
               the 
                   whole
                      cause; 
                          and
                        con-
                   demn
                you to
          death.’”
