Overjoyed by the good news and preceded by his imperial procession,
The emperor headed to the teahouse to meet his new clothes.
“Oh! He isn’t wearing anything!” cried out a little scamp.
It was silent for a moment, but soon everyone was laughing at the emperor.
With shame on his cheeks but with a dignified stride,
The emperor realized that he had been thoroughly fleeced.
