I lived in a house of glass,
Where I with glorious beams was blest;
But such my fate, it came to pass, At length that I was disposess’d,
Then being brought to open view, Indeed, the nak’d truth I’ll tell,
I was both flay’d and quarter’d too, By those that lov’d me passing well.
It stands on its one leg with its heart in its head
