Corrinne, the hen, when eggs had been
All gathered in, would brood and cluck,
But eggs or knife, she'd opt for life,
Then lay more eggs, and count her luck.
Colleen, the cow, is better now,
But once she was meticulous.
To weep a week, when sprang a leak,
Was utterly ridiculous.
Old Hal, the horse, had served, of course,
For many, many years, 'twas true,
But better work, than duty shirk,
And soon become a tube of glue.
The snip of shears, once brought to tears
Young Lily Lamb, so glossy black,
But woolen crops, beat mutton chops;
She's sheepish now, for fleece grows back.
The pampered pig, he danced a jig,
No eggs, no leaks, no work, no wool,
But bacon he quite soon will be,
And know, at last, he was the fool.
No pleasure take, when others make
So much of what, to you, seems small,
Or you, in turn, will surely learn
Of just how hard the prideful fall.
