Alice's Adventures in Wonderland:
Chapter 3. A Caucus-Race and a Long Tale - Part 5

'Mine is a long and a sad tale!' said the Mouse, turning to Alice, and sighing.

'It IS a long tail, certainly,' said Alice, looking down with wonder at the Mouse's tail; 'but why do you call it sad?' And she kept on puzzling about it while the Mouse was speaking, so that her idea of the tale was something like this:--

         'Fury said to a
         mouse, That he
        met in the
       house,
     "Let us
       both go to
        law: I will
         prosecute
          YOU.--Come,
            I'll take no
            denial
; We
           must have a
         trial: For
       really this
      morning I've
     nothing
     to do."
      Said the
       mouse to the
        cur, "Such
         a trial,
          dear Sir,
             With
           no jury
         or judge,
        would be
       wasting
       our
       breath."
        "I'll be
         judge, I'll
          be jury,"
             Said
          cunning
           old Fury:
           "I'll
           try the
             whole
             cause,
               and
            condemn
            you
           to
            death."'

'You are not attending!' said the Mouse to Alice severely. 'What are you thinking of?'

'I beg your pardon,' said Alice very humbly: 'you had got to the fifth bend, I think?'

'I had NOT!' cried the Mouse, sharply and very angrily.

'A knot!' said Alice, always ready to make herself useful, and looking anxiously about her. 'Oh, do let me help to undo it!'

'I shall do nothing of the sort,' said the Mouse, getting up and walking away. 'You insult me by talking such nonsense!'

'I didn't mean it!' pleaded poor Alice. 'But you're so easily offended, you know!'

The Mouse only growled in reply.
