Sư tử hay rình mò, lảng vảng
Quanh cánh đồng có trảng cỏ non
Nơi bày bò đực bốn con
Vẫn thường gặm cỏ, luôn luôn tụ đàn.
Sư tử đã mấy lần thử sức
Nhưng lũ bò lập tức xoay mông
Đầu ra ngoài đuôi vào trong,
Phía nào cũng chỉ sừng cong đón mời!
Rồi một ngày xấu trời cũng đến
Bốn con bò chợt hết quí nhau
Mỗi con một góc đồng sâu
Cũng đều có cỏ gặm đâu tuỳ lòng
Sư tử cứ tấn công con một
Ít lâu sau cả bốn cùng toi
Chụm nhau non lớn ai ơi
Tách ra từng đứa thì đời tiêu vong.

Three Bullocks and a Lion
A Lion had been watching three Bullocks feeding in an open field. He had tried to attack them several times, but they had kept together, and helped each other to drive him off. The Lion had little hope of eating them, for he was no match for three strong Bullocks with their sharp horns and hoofs. But he could not keep away from that field, for it is hard to resist watching a good meal, even when there is little chance of getting it.
Then one day the Bullocks had a quarrel, and when the hungry Lion came to look at them and lick his chops as he was accustomed to do, he found them in separate corners of the field, as far away from one another as they could get.
It was now an easy matter for the Lion to attack them one at a time, and this he proceeded to do with the greatest satisfaction and relish.
