This is a little rhyme for fun. The moral of the story? 人须有自知之明。One must know his own limitations, otherewise... Sadly, we human beings often act like these two little bugs.

My big brother went out of town today.
He ran into two bugs boasting to each other.
One bug said:"I ate a big willow tree yesterday!"
Another bug said:" I'm gonna eat a big grey donkey tomorrow!"
They were boasting with such gusto,
When a big rooster came from the south.
Seeing (the rooster),the two bugs got angry,
(They) dashed toward the rooster together.
(They) intended to eat the rooster, but failed,
(Because) they ran into the rooster's stomach together.
