Lepidote the Quotable Stoat

It is here

that I would like to quote

a few words

from Lepidote,

the quotable stoat,

from the time of Aesop,

when all was wrote by voice,

as spoken by the animals,

before they decided

that we never listened anyway.


Lepidote, by choice,

spoke in a highly refined voice,

like a lord;

but with a degree of lethargy,

as if bored.


The words of his,

of which I speak,

are, ‘Man should learn

to protect the meek,

and cease the harm,

he often does,

before extinction

comes to us.’


This stoat was wise,

and in his eyes

the wisdom shone –

an Oxford Don

of the animal kind,

such was his mind.
