    A braggart, lover of the chase,
    Had lost a dog of valued race,
    And thought him in a lion’s maw.
    He ask’d a shepherd whom he saw,
    “Pray show me, man, the robber’s place,
    And I’ll have justice in the case.”
    “‘Tis on this mountain side,”
    The shepherd man replied.
    “The tribute of a sheep I pay,
    Each month, and where I please I stray.”
    Out leap’d the lion as he spake,
    And came that way with agile feet.
    The braggart, prompt his flight to take,
    Cried, “Jove, O grant a safe retreat!”
    A danger close at hand
    Of courage is the test.
    It shows us who will stand—
    Whose legs will run their best.
