An Antic Interlude

A tiny, toiling, tired Ant, 
Encountering an Elephant, 
The Monster eyed unterrified-
And cried perversely thus:
"You Block my path, Unwieldy Hulk!
Retreat! or take your towering bulk 
Some other way, Without delay!"
(The Snotty little cuss.)

Although the massive quadruped
Heard naught the silly insect said,
He turned aside because he spied 
A tiger in the Gloom...
And thus a mere, uncivil Ant
Believed she'd bluffed an Elephant, 
And bit a cross Rhinoceros 
And met a dreadful doom.

MORAL

A bluffer is a duffer who 
Doth bite off more than he can chew. 
- G. Wiles Hallock

The story goes that the circus's stay in Madison Square Garden is the most entertaining part of the annual tour for the menagerie and the freaks—they get so much fun out of looking at the New Yorkers.
