Boothby: The Lion, the Bull and the Goat

Curs'd is the wretch who has the will
Without the power to do ill.
As once a Bull from Leo fled,
A Goat oppos'd his horny head.
"Out of my way, poor idiot," cries
The Bull, "if you your safety prize."
The stupid animal stood fast,
And the Bull toss'd him as he past.
