Ye Olde Oyster House
(with apologies to the memory of Charles Dodgson)
The Walrus and the Carpenter
Were walking close at hand.
They wept like anything to see
Such quantities of sand.
"If this were only cleared away"
They said, "It would be grand."
"If twenty maids with twenty mops
Swept it for half a year
Do you suppose", the Walrus said,
"That they could get it clear?"
"I doubt it", said the Carpenter.
"T'would cost too much I fear."
"Oh, oysters come and walk with us",
