THE WOLF AND THE LAMB
ÖN METİN

 

A Wolf came upon a Lamb straying from the flock, and felt some compunction about taking the life of so helpless a creature without some plausible excuse; so he cast about for a grievance and said at last,
--"Last year, sirrah, you grossly insulted me."
-"That is impossible, sir," bleated the Lamb, "for I wasn't born then."
--"Well," retorted the Wolf, "you feed in my pastures."
-"That cannot be," replied the Lamb, "for I have never yet tasted grass."
--"You drink from my spring, then," continued the Wolf.
-"Indeed, sir," said the poor Lamb, "I have never yet drunk anything but my mother's milk."
--"Well, anyhow," said the Wolf, "I'm not going without my dinner":
and he sprang upon the Lamb and devoured it without more ado.
