Fabula Facilis: Leo et Canis

Canis leoni occurrit
et iocose dicit,
"O leo miser, inedia exhaustus,
quid percurris silvas et devia?
Me specta, pinguem ac nitidum,
atque haec consequor
non labore, sed otio."
Tum leo respondet,
"Habes tu quidem tuas epulas,
vincula etiam stolide habes.
Tu servus esto, qui servire potes;
equidem liber ego sum,
nec servire volo."
