Under the lion’s skin:
A donkey found a lion’s skin and put it on. In this frightening disguise, he grazed in a farmer’s field. He amused himself by frightening all the animals he met. He felt so powerful!
Along came a fox. The donkey under the lion’s skin tried to frighten him. The donkey stood tall under the skin and let out a sound that he thought would resemble a roar. Alas, his donkey voice was all that was heard.
The fox laughed and said, “Silly donkey, if you really want to frighten me you’ll have to disguise your bray. Clothes MAY disguise a fool you know. But, his words always give him away!
