Fabula Facilis: Vulpes Sine Cauda

In foveam incidit vulpecula,
et cauda eius detruncata est!
Postea occurrit multis vulpeculis.
Eas indignabunde conspicit et dicit,
"Fraterculi, quo vaditis?"
"Ad leonis basilicam imus," respondent.
"Ad leonis basilicam?" dicit vulpes.
"Profecto, ego ab ea redeo,
et mos iamiam novellus est:
omnes ferae detruncant caudas!"
Vulpeculae verba eius audiunt,
et detruncant caudas suas.
Vulpes hoc videt et irridet!
Hoc modo consolata est,
"Socios mihi creavi,
si non periculi, saltem pudoris."
Fabula docet:
Socios doloris habere
solamen est
