‘Tweedledum and Tweedledee – excerpt’
By Lewis Carroll
Tweedledum and Tweedledee agreed to have a battle;
For Tweedledum said Tweedledee had spoiled his new rattle.
Just then flew down a monstrous crow, as black as a tar-barrel;
Which frightened both the heroes so, they quite forgot their quarrel.
‘I know what you’re thinking about,’ said Tweedledum: ‘but it isn’t so, nohow.’
‘Contrariwise,’ continued Tweedledee, ‘if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn’t, it ain’t. That s logic.’
