THE ASS in the LION'S SKIN.

An Ass, who wore a Lion's hide,
Spread fear and terror far and wide;
The animals all frighted fly,
And e'en the Fox himself was shy:
But when the foolish creature bray'd,
His compliment the Fox thus paid: -
"Dread Sir! I hardly should presume
"So near your majesty to come,
"Did not your gracious voice declare
"What sort of Lion, sir, you are!"

Whene'er their speech their pride belies,
Pedants and Puppies we despise.
