The wolves like very gluttons eat.
One at a feast, thus gulping up his meat,
Devoured so eagerly, they say,
He nearly lost his life that day :
Far down his throat a bone stuck fast.
Well for this wolf, who could not cry,
A stork quite opportunely passed ;
He made a sign and she drew nigh.
Quickly the operatrix got to work
Pulled out the bone; and asked her fee :
“ Your fee ! ” Wolf cried, “ good Mother Stork,
Your little joke is far too free.
What ! not contented to have saved your pate,
That was so tempting in my jaws ?
Begone ! you are a wretch ingrate,
And never come beneath my paws! ”
