some Lewis Carroll for the morning

Lewis_Carroll_-_Henry_Holiday_-_Hunting_of_the_Snark_-_Plate_4

He had bought a large map representing the sea,
Without the least vestige of land:
And the crew were much pleased when they found  it to be
A map they could all understand.

 

What ís the good of Mercatorís North Poles and  Equators,
Tropics, Zones, and Meridian Lines?
So the Bellman would cry: and the crew would reply
They are merely conventional signs!

 

Other maps are such shapes, with their islands and   capes!
But we’ve got our brave Captain to thank:
(So the crew would protest) that he has bought us the  best
A perfect and absolute blank!
