Excerpt

Thor
Ein Esel mit gespitztem Ohr,
Der käute sich sein Bündel Heu
Gedankenvoll und still entzwei --
Nun kommen da und bleiben stehn
Der naseweisen Buben zween,
Die auch sogleich, indem sie lachen,
Verhaßte Redensarten machen,
Womit man denn bezwecken wollte,
Daß sich der Esel ärgern sollte. --
Doch dieser hocherfahrne Greis
Beschrieb nur einen halben Kreis,
Verhielt sich stumm und zeigte itzt
Die Seite, wo der Wedel sitzt.

Wer möchte diesen Erdenball
Noch fernerhin betreten,
Wenn wir Bewohner überall
Die Wahrheit sagen thäten.

Ihr hießet uns, wir hießen euch
Spitzbuben und Hallunken,
Wir sagten uns fatales Zeug
Noch eh wir uns betrunken.

Und überall im weiten Land,
Als langbewährtes Mittel,
Entsproßte aus der Menschenhand
Der treue Knotenknittel.

Da lob ich mir die Höflichkeit,
Das zierliche Betrügen.
