Most Fables - Poem by shimon weinroth

fables told at the table,
or formed in a stable,
metaphorical stories
with a moral and point

that simile and simple are unable,
to tell or spin a spell
of narrative magic,
told straight and forward

full of animals and analogies
more falacious than true,
are told to construe that naive
and simple have another view
