I've been there in those first moments of time,
when he was asked to name us all,
I was there and my name I got.
The wittiest one I was,
let that be known, wittier than the fox,
so the book says!
It was for my witts I saw the truth
and for the friendship we had in those times,
I told it to her,
her who was his even then.
For the friendship we had i wanted them equal,
so I told her the truth, a truth that she shared.
But equal he wanted her not.
So his shame for the truth
he weighted on her and she could not carry his shame.
So her shame for his shame
she weighted on me and for this i fell to the earth.
For the friendship we had
I carry the shame.
For this shame my brethren eat dust to this day.
For one truth was friendship destroyed.
For one truth mortal enemies made.
For one tale of truth I lost my stand
and fell down to the earth
where I lay to this day.
For but one truth I told her
and for but one lie she told,
I lost it all for one lie that she told:
"She has betrayed me!"
