    A picture once was shown,
    In which one man, alone,
    Upon the ground had thrown
    A lion fully grown.
    Much gloried at the sight the rabble.
    A lion thus rebuked their babble:—
    “That you have got the victory there,
    There is no contradiction.
    But, gentles, possibly you are
    The dupes of easy fiction:
    Had we the art of making pictures,
    Perhaps our champion had beat yours!”

    Many thanks!
