Ein Kehlkopf
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Ein Kehlkopf litt an Migräne
Und schrie wie eine Hyäne,
Er schrie sich wund.
Doch als ihm niemand zu Hilfe kam
Und niemand sein Geschrei vernahm,
War er auf einmal -- -- gesund.

A larynx
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
A larynx suffered a migraine
And howled loud, Hyena-wise;
It brayed until it was fairly hoarse.
But because help was sought in vain
And when no one heeded its cries,
It was cured as a simple matter of course.
