This wolf another brings to mind,
Who found dame Fortune more unkind,
In that the greedy, pirate sinner,
Was balked of life as well as dinner.
The great are like the maskers of the stage;
Their show deceives the simple of the age.
For all that they appear to be they pass,
With only those whose type’s the ass.
The horses have not always been
The humble slaves of men.
When, in the far-off past,
The fare of gentlemen was mast,
A fable flourished with antiquity
Whose meaning I could never clearly see.
Kind reader, draw the moral if you’re able:
I give you here the naked fable.
They to bamboozle are inclined,
Says Merlin, who bamboozled are.
The word, though rather unrefined,
Has yet an energy we ill can spare;
A peacock moulted: soon a jay was seen
Bedecked with Argus tail of gold and green,
High strutting, with elated crest,
As much a peacock as the rest.
