Recommended Adaptation Length: 10 Minutes
Candidate for Adaptation? Not Reviewed
Two rats in foraging fell on an egg,–
For gentry such as they
A genteel dinner every way;
They needed not to find an ox’s leg.
Brimful of joy and appetite,
They were about to sack the box,
So tight without the aid of locks,
When suddenly there came in sight
A personage–Sir Pullet Fox.
The translation is in verse; a head-start on lyrics.
