Fox and Crow

Mr. Crow was perched upon a limb,
And Reynard the Fox looked up at him;
For the Crow held in his great big beak
A morsel the Fox would go far to seek.

Said the Fox, in admiring tones: "My word!
Sir Crow, you are a handsome bird.
Such feathers! If you would only sing,
The birds of these woods would call you King."

The Crow, who did not see the joke,
Forgot that his voice was just a croak.
He opened his beak, in his foolish pride--
And down fell the morsel the Fox had spied.

"Ha-ha!" said the Fox. "And now you see
You should not listen to flattery.
Vanity, Sir is a horrid vice--
I'm sure this lesson was worth it’s price."

Vanity has a price tag!
