THE FLEA AND THE MAN

ORİJİNAL METİN (DİNLEME METNİ)

 

BASİTLEŞTİRİLMİŞ METİN
A flea bit a man again and again. The man could not stand it any longer and made a thorough search for it, and succeeded in catching it. He held it between his finger and thumb and said (or shouted because he was very angry), "Who are you that you make so free with my person?" The flea was terrified and answered in a weak little voice, "Oh, sir! Please don't kill me! I am so little that I can't do you much harm." But the man laughed and said, "I am going to kill you now. If something is bad, we must destroy it, even if it can do only little harm".
Do not waste your pity on a scamp.

THE FLEA AND THE MAN
A Flea bit a Man, and bit him again, and again, till he could stand it no longer, but made a thorough search for it, and at last succeeded in catching it. Holding it between his finger and thumb, he said-or rather shouted, so angry was he-"Who are you, pray, you wretched little creature, that you make so free with my person?" The Flea, terrified, whimpered in a weak little voice, "Oh, sir! pray let me go; don't kill me! I am such a little thing that I can't do you much harm." But the Man laughed and said, "I am going to kill you now, at once: whatever is bad has got to be destroyed, no matter how slight the harm it does."
