The Hunting Of The Snark
Nathaniel A Miller

The Hunting of the Snark
‘Come, listen, my men, while I tell you again
   The five unmistakable marks
By which you may know, whosesoever you go,
   The warranted genuine Snarks.

‘Let us take them in order. The first is the taste,
   Which is meagre and hollow, but crisp:
Like a coat that is rather too tight in the waist,
   With flavour of Will-o’-the-Wisp.

‘Its habit of getting up late you’ll agree
   That it carries too far, when I say
That is frequently breakfasts at five-o’clock tea,
   And dines on the following day.

‘The third is its slowness in taking a jest.
   Should you happen to venture on one,
It will sigh like a thing that is deeply distressed:
   And it always looks grave at a pun.

‘The fourth is its fondness for bathing-machines,
    Which is constantly carries about,
And believes that they add to the beauty of scenes –
     A sentiment open to doubt.

‘The fifth is ambition. It next will be right
    To describe each particular batch:
Distinguishing those that have feathers, and bite,
   From those that have whiskers, and scratch.

‘For, although common Snarks do no manner of harm,
   Yet I feel it my duty to say
Some are Boojums ---- `

Lewis Carroll –
