A wolf who'd small success in his career
Of hunting sheep,

that round his quarters lay,
Thought fit to act the fox one day,
And as another personage appear.
The shepherd's dress and uniform he took,
A cudgel served him for a crook ;
And that his person might not scare,
He hung the bagpipes on with care.
Fain had he written on his hat,
“ I am, good Roger, shepherd of this flock. ”

All well equipped excepting that,
His fore-feet on his crook outside his smock,
Roger the cheat softly approached unseen,
Roger the true was lying on the green,
And lost in sleep profound ;
The mastiff slept, so did the bagpipes whine,
Alike asleep were all the sheep around.
To wake the dog the wolf did not incline.
To lead away the sheep toward his fort
He thought it needful in some sort
To imitate the shepherd's speech ;
But that was quite beyond his reach.
The tone he spoke in through the woods resounded,
And all the mystery at once expounded :
The howl aroused them from their sleep,
The mastiff, shepherd, and the sheep.
The dressed-up wolf was in an evil plight,
For he, alas !

could neither flee nor fight.
Cheats ever blunder, and at last they smart.
Act, as a wolf, if such thou art,
It is by far the safest part.
