Ace of SpadesAce of Spades

The Ant and the Fly

The boasting fly did the sage ant upbraid
That she in molehills her dark mansions made
The ant reply'd, all thy atchievements are
Obtaind by theft & still preserv'd with fear
He who by honest means content attains
Is greater than the villain with his gains
