The Kingdom of the Lion

Those animals that lived in the field and the woodland were ruled over by a lion. He was not angry, violent, or despotic in any way; rather, he was just and as compassionate as a monarch could be. During his rule, he issued a royal public announcement calling for a general assembly of all the birds and beasts, and he drew up the foundation for a universal league, in which the wolf and the lamb, the panther and the kid, the tiger and the stag, and the dog and the hare should all live together in perfect peace and harmony. This was to be the goal of the universal league. The Hare spoke the following words: “Oh, how I have yearned to see this day, in which the weak shall take their position with dignity at the side of the mighty.” After making such a statement, the hare immediately began to flee for his life.
