Fox Cub And Bullhead

One day, as Fox Cub was hurrying along the lake shore, Bullhead swam up to the water's edge. At the sight of him Fox Cub began to tease in a sing-song voice:

You've a big stomach!
You've a big mouth!

Bullhead got very angry and said:

Your eyes are round,
Your fur's all tangled,
So there!

Fox Cub burst into tears and ran off home.

"Why're you crying?" Mother Fox asked.

"Because Bullhead teased me. He said my eyes are round and my fur's all tangled."

"You must've teased him first," Mother Fox said.

Fox Cub had nothing to say to this, and so said nothing.
