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 !"
