# 'Fair Trial'

Rating: 3.0
Once, two rats were talking.
'Try this, ' said the first.
'It is of xanthous essence with bewildering taste
Humans call it swiss cheese.'
'That's fascinating, ' said the second rat.
'I've got a florid essence of my own called,
sharp cheddar.'

They decided to trade,
But each was worried losing his favorite flavor.
Each surreptitiously took a mouthful of
What they have in hand, first.
Then each blurted the same.
'There's no difference.'
They agreed, it wasn't
A fair trial.

'A remanufactured idea' - but a damn clever one; proving there is always life in a good, original idea. The notion behind this form is clear and precisely stated: such that its moral should raise morale - if not a hearty laugh!
