THE KID AND THE WOLF
A FRISKY young Kid had been
left by the herdsman on the
thatched roof of a sheep shelter
to keep him out of harm's way.
The Kid was browsing near the
edge of the roof, when he spied a
Wolf and began to jeer at him,
making faces and abusing him to
his heart's content.
"I hear you," said the Wolf,
"and I haven't the least grudge
against you for what you say or
do. When you are up there it is
the roof that's talking, not you."
Do not say anything at any time that you would not say at all times.
