The Goose that Laid the Golden Egg
A man once had a goose I’m told
Which had laid each day an egg of gold.
Now if this treasure were well spent,
It might make anyone content.
But no! This man desired more;
And though of eggs he had rich store;
He thought one day the goose he’d kill,
And then at once his pockets fill.
So chasing goosey round and round,
She soon was caught and firmly bound.
He opened her from neck to tail
And then his folly did bewail.
For not a single egg was there,
And thus he lost this treasure rare.
