  • Hedgehog dines on pain

    A horse chestnut with its rind full of prickly spines
    Fell to the ground waiting for the hedgehog to dine
    Insects, worms, snakes, are the hedgehog’s treats
    But all through the night it found few tasty sweets
    Hungry still it came upon the horse chestnut
    From which it took a good nibble for his gut
    “What pricks my snout, why so unkind
    These sharp bristles of the chestnut’s rind
    These small spines cause untold pain so much
    How much more painful must mine be to touch?”

    One can never understand misery others feel
    who has not himself suffered a great deal
