The Donkey in the Lion Skin
A Donkey in The Lion's skin arrayed
Made everybody fear.
And this was quite queer,
Because he was himself afraid.
Yet everywhere he strayed
The people ran like deer.
Ah, ah! He is betrayed:
No lion has such long nor hairy ears.
Old Martin spied the tip; and country folk
Who are not in the secret of the joke,
With open mouths and eyes
Stare at old Martin's prize--
A Lion led to about, with neck in yoke.
The Moral of the Story
Don’t pretend to be what you are not!
You may find yourself in a sticky situation.
