Joseph Friedlander, comp.  The Standard Book of Jewish Verse.  1917.
 
All Things to All Men
By Ben Joseph Palquera (Trans. Harry W. Ettelson)
 
ADAPT thyself to time and circumstance
So wilt thou be untroubled every way.
Amongst the wise make wise thy countenance
And with the fool the role of dullard play;
Roar, if upon a lion thou shouldst chance;        5
But if an ass thou meetest simply bray.
