The Umble Fly
By the Way
Snark Keeper Weeper Early Dawning, Out his door He skipped One morning, On his porch Found a basket, With the label Take good care, Keeper Weeper Looked in basket, There he found A big surprise, Sitting inside Quite contented, Looking up Enormous grin, Could it be The last remaining, Famous both In verse and prose, Lost forgotten How could it be, Was this the last The one and only, Last surviving Elusive Snark. Tony
Note. The Snark was the subject of a poem by Lewis Carroll written in 1874
called "The Hunting of the Snark", which they never found.
