The frog who wanted to be as big as an ox A frog saw an ox   Which seemed of great size.   She was not as big as an egg,   Envious, stretches and swells and  is working,    To match the animal size,   Saying: "Look well, my sister;   Is that enough?  Tell me I'm there yet?    Nay  - Here I am, then?  -Not at all.  Here I am?   "You do not approach." The miserable  blockhead    Swelled so much it broke.   The world is full of people who are not wiser.   Every citizen wants to build as the nobles,   Every prince has ambassadors L 'Ane wearing the skin of the Lion From the lion's skin having a donkey dressed   Was feared throughout the round;   And although an animal without  virtue,    It shook the whole world.   A small piece of ear unfortunately escaped   Discovered  the cheat  and error:    Martin  then made his motion.
