They who their sorrows most bemoan
May find worse miseries than their own.
An Ass his want of horns bewails;
An Ape that Apes are short of tails;
“What would you say,” a Mole replies,
“Were you, like me, depriv’d of eyes?”

This version of Aesop’s fable is from “Fables and Satires,” by Sir Brooke Boothby
