Leigh Hunt

Risor, "Mr. Hunt and the Court of King's Bench" The Literary Chronicle 1 (13 November 1819) 412.



"Since thus repuls'd — I'll get (Hunt said)
A legal covering for my head,—
Me 'twill inspire, if BIG;
So shall my pleadings all be treasur'd;
For every lawyer's law is measur'd
According to his WIG."
