Boothby: The Wolf and the Shepherds

The powerful too oft abuse
Rights, which to others they refuse.
A prowling Wolf one evening put
His muzzle in a Shepherd's hut;
And there at table saw them seated,
To a young lamb's fat quarter treated.
"Aye, aye, 'tis very well," said he;
"Did you at such a feast find me,
The country up in arms would be."
