Once a fox, tired and hungry
was walking down a street,
when he came across a crow on a tree
holding a piece of meat.
His mouth watered at the site of the meat,
He thought, " I must think of a plan
to snatch the meat from the foolish crow
as cunningly as I can."
Aloud he said to the oblivious crow :
"Dear me ! How lucky am I !
To come across such a great person
As I was walking by !
Really Mr. Crow, how famous you are !
As famous as one can be
Of your melodious singing everyone is a fan,
and one them is me."
The crow was suprised
and his ego inflated
as the fox went on and on ,
"But dear Mr. Crow,
I want to hear you sing.
So for me please sing a song."
The crow now eager to prove himself
opened his mouth to sing,
Down fell the piece of meat near the fox
who gave the crow a hearty wink !
"So dear Mr. Crow," he said in a mocking voice.
"You can go on singing if you like,
For I have got what I wanted,
I will go and take a lovely bite !"
