Boothby: The Frogs and the Bulls

Oft when the strong dispute for sway,
The weak are victims of the fray.
A Frog who saw two Bulls contend,
Cried out, "What ills o'er us impend!"
"How so," said one, who chanc'd to hear,
"Pray what have we from Bulls to fear?"
"More than you think," replies the Frog:
"The beaten Bull will seek this bog,
Forc'd to forsake his native groves,
And tread down thousands as he roves."
