The Crow and the Sheep

: Aesop's Fables

A TROUBLESOME CROW seated herself on the back of a Sheep. The

Sheep, much against his will, carried her backward and forward

for a long time, and at last said, "If you had treated a dog in

this way, you would have had your deserts from his sharp teeth."

To this the Crow replied, "I despise the weak and yield to the

strong. I know whom I may bully and whom I must flatter; and I

thus prolong my life to a good old age."
