Some beast with horns did gore
The lion; and that sovereign dread,
Resolved to suffer so no more,
Straight banish’d from his realm, ’tis said,
All sorts of beasts with horns–
Rams, bulls, goats, stags, and unicorns.
Such brutes all promptly fled.
The translation is in verse; a head-start on lyrics.
