The Wolf and the Kid

: Aesop's Fables

A Kid was perched up on the top of a house, and looking down

saw a Wolf passing under him. Immediately he began to revile and

attack his enemy. "Murderer and thief," he cried, "what do you

here near honest folks' houses? How dare you make an appearance

where your vile deeds are known?"

"Curse away, my young friend," said the Wolf.

"It is easy to be brave from a safe distance."
