The lion and the mouse

18 October, 2020

A lion prowling through the woods
In eager search for prey
By chance was caught within a net
And could not get away.
It tried in vain to free itself
From this unpleasant house
From out its hole there crept
A tiny little mouse
It nibbled with its teeth so small
The cords that formed the net
Till one by one, the string gave way
And free the lion set.
This shows that we should not despise
The humblest thing that lives
The strongest at some time may need
The help the poor man gives.
