The Fox And The Grapes, And...
______ is offering a 50% discount,
But I still couldn't afford it. As in the tales
Of 'The Fox and the Grapes of Aesop's fables,
I desire not and say, "It's not worth the amount"
"THE FOX WHO LONGED FOR GRAPES, BEHELD WITH PAIN
THE TEMPTING CLUSTERS WERE TOO HIGH TO GAIN;
GRIEVED IN HIS HEART HE FORCED A CARELESS SMILE,
AND CRIED, 'THEY' RE SOUR AND HARDLY WORTH MY WHILE'"
