Herford: A Fox and a Crab

A Fox in search of food one day
Espied a stranded Crab that lay
Upon the beach. "What luck!" said he,
"A breakfast ready made for me!"
"The luck is yours," the Crab replied;
"Mine left me with the ebbing tide.
Had I been faithful to the sea,
I would not now your breakfast be!"
