Aesop's Best: 80 Fables in Verse (forthcoming)


1 Some Timid Bunnies Change Their Tune

One day some bunnies gathered round
To moan their awful fate,
They cried: How sad it is to live
With terrors small and great,
        Those hunters, dogs & wolves we dread!
        That is no life! We're better dead!

Let's die! said they, and headed down
Into a pond to crash,
But as they galloped toward the pond
They heard an awful SPLASH!
        About a thousand frightened frogs
        Had thought they were attacked by dogs!

Stop! said one bunny. Don't you see
How dumb is all this fuss?
These frogs have more to fear than we!
They're even scared of us!
        It's not our fate we should despise,
        It is our fear! --That's what's unwise!

MORAL: Follow your faith and not your fear
