The Flea and the Wrestler

: Aesop's Fables

A FLEA settled upon the bare foot of a Wrestler and bit him,

causing the man to call loudly upon Hercules for help. When the

Flea a second time hopped upon his foot, he groaned and said, "O

Hercules! if you will not help me against a Flea, how can I hope

for your assistance against greater antagonists?'
