Lange nichts gegessen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es trafen sich von ungefähr
Ein Wolf, ein Mensch, sowie ein Bär,
Und weil sie lange nichts gegessen,
So haben sie sich aufgefressen.
Der Wolf den Menschen, der den Bär,
Der Bär den Wolf. -- Es schmeckte sehr
Und blieb nichts übrig, als ein Tuch,
Drei Haare und ein Wörterbuch.
Das war der Nachlass dieser drei.
Der eine Mensch der hiess Karl May.
