The lion roared as if to say,
‘Use what I hold with utmost care’
But little children like to play
And shook the pepper everywhere
Until the sneezes it released
Made everybody weak and red
So when at last the uproar ceased
They all repaired at once to bed.
The lion laughed and shook his mane,
The clout he held delighted him;
‘I may be glass yet I maintain
Dominion over all of them.’
