The Belly and the Members

THE MEMBERS of the Body rebelled against the Belly, and said,

"Why should we be perpetually engaged in administering to your

wants, while you do nothing but take your rest, and enjoy

yourself in luxury and self-indulgence?' The Members carried out

their resolve and refused their assistance to the Belly. The

whole Body quickly became debilitated, and the hands, feet,

mouth, and eyes, when too late, repented of their folly.
