THE END OF THE FABLES

Once upon a time, there was a fox …
starts the rooster
to compose a fable

But perceives
that it cannot work
because if the fox hears the fable
he will fetch me

Once upon a time there was a farmer …
begins the rooster
to compose a fable

But he realizes again
that cannot work
because if the farmer hears the fable
he will be killed

Once upon a time …

Look here, look there
there are no fables left.
