The Lion and the Mouse


 

Mouse:

You thought me weak, you thought me small,

Not a worthy meal, at all.

Laughing off my faithful vow

You sent me off with furrowed brow.

 

Lion:

How can such a creature be

Of any use to one like me?

Such a fool to think so big,

With bones less sturdy than a twig

 

 Mouse:

What’s this I hear? I know that sound.

Alas! My friend tied to the ground!

With fervent speed I’ll chew the rope

(As eyes look up renewed by hope.)

 

Lion:

My friend, I ask that you forgive

My thoughts the day I let you live.

Your strength within your spirit lies.

Here stands a giant in my eyes!

 

And the moral is:

Don’t pick on the little guy. He’s probably smarter than you and will save your ass one day.
