THE GOATHERD AND THE GOAT
 A GOAT strayed away from
the flock, tempted by a patch of
clover. The Goatherd tried to
call it back, but in vain. It
would not obey him. Then he
picked up a stone and threw it,
breaking the Goat's horn.
The Goatherd was frightened.
"Do not tell the master," he
begged the Goat.
"No," said the Goat, "that
broken horn can speak for itself!"
Wicked deeds will not stay hid.
