Candidate for Adaptation? Not Reviewed
A Troutling, some time since,
Endeavour’d vainly to convince
A hungry fisherman
Of his unfitness for the frying-pan.
The fisherman had reason good–
The troutling did the best he could–
Both argued for their lives.
The translation is in verse; a head-start on lyrics.
