6. Fit the Sixth: THE BARRISTER'S DREAM
They sought it with thimbles, they sought it with care;
But the Barrister, weary of proving in vain
He dreamed that he stood in a shadowy Court,
The Witnesses proved, without error or flaw,
The indictment had never been clearly expressed,
The Jury had each formed a different view
"You must know ---" said the Judge: but the Snark exclaimed "Fudge!"
"In the matter of Treason the pig would appear
"The fact of Desertion I will not dispute;
"My poor client's fate now depends on your votes."
