Excerpt

The Animals' Rebellion.

The "Trip to Sea"[A] had long been made,
The "Picnic"[B] bills had all been paid;
But if you'll listen, I will tell
What made the animals rebel.

The Tiger was dissatisfied--
"Why should the Lion reign?" he cried;
"He's no more King of Beasts than I;
So let us all his rule defy!"

A secret meeting then he called:
And while the others stood appalled,
His wants and grievances explained,
And quickly some adherents gained.

The Fox his joy could not conceal--
"In guns," thought he, "I'll make a deal!"
The Owl, who all his speeches heard,
Took care to take down every word:

And ere the rising of the sun,
The Great Rebellion had begun!

[Footnote A: "The Animals' Trip to Sea."]
[Footnote B: "The Animals' Picnic."]
