The Lion Beaten By The Man

(Recueil 1, Livre 3, Fable 10)



A picture once was shown,

In which one man, alone,

On the ground had thrown

A lion fully grown.

Much gloried at the sight the rabble.

A lion thus rebuked their babble:

"That you have got the victory there,

There is no contradiction.

But, gentles, possibly you are

The dupes of easy fiction:

Had we the art of making pictures,

Perhaps our champion had beat yours!"

Jean de La Fontaine

Book 3, Fable 10
