Though he looked an incredible dunce:
He had just one idea--but, that one being 'Snark',
The good Bellman engaged him at once."
'The Hunting of the Snark' (1876) is a nonsense poem by 'Alice Adventures in Wonderland' author Lewis Carroll. It describes the disastrous hunting mission by a bizarre group of characters, among these a butcher who can only kill beavers and a guy who forgot his own name. Gloriously nonsensical, this poem is bound to appeal to all fans of Alice.
