An iron pot proposed one day
To travel with a pot of clay :
The latter made his best excuse,
And thought it prudent to refuse :
“ Better,” he said, “ to stay at home,
Than idly thus abroad to roam.
For me the smallest thing that hits,
Will crack or break me all to bits,
Nor scrap of me find home again.
But you,” he cried, “ let nought detain ;
Your texture shows such strength of skin,
I see not aught to keep you in.”
“ I’ll screen you,” cried the solid pot ;
“ If aught of danger be your lot ;
I’ll get between the two, ye know,
And from your body ward the blow."
This offer made his fears subside,
He joined the iron pot with pride,
And both went hobbling on together,
Laughing at accidents and weather.
But shortly they too near each other roll,
As they went jogging cheek by jowl ;
And all along the way
Suffered that pot of clay.
Hardly, in fine, a hundred paves gone,
When by his comrade he was overthrown,
And smashed to bits without the time to groan.

Then let us with our equals only stay,
Or think with trembling on that pot of clay.
