While walking, a King,

Suddenly his foot slips.

All around, who saw,

Said the street is to blame…

A little later a citizen,

Like the King, slipped.

They said of this poor man:

How much has he had to drink…

The mirror

A monkey asked the mirror

When in it he saw his face:

Where do you find the courage

To show me ugliness?

She starts to explain,

But he didn’t wait and broke it.

The broken mirror said:

What wrong have I done your sir,

Since you break my poor self,

For simply telling the truth...
