Herford: The Four Bulls and the Lion

Once on a time four Bulls agreed
To herd together and to feed
In the same pasture. Crouched near by,
A Lion watched, but dared not try
His strength against four Bulls combined:
And so by craft he undermined
Their friendship, sowing seeds of hate
And causing them to separate
And graze in fields apart. This done,
He feasted on them one by one.
