The Wolf and the Sheep

: Aesop's Fables

A WOLF, sorely wounded and bitten by dogs, lay sick and maimed in

his lair. Being in want of food, he called to a Sheep who was

passing, and asked him to fetch some water from a stream flowing

close beside him. "For," he said, "if you will bring me drink, I

will find means to provide myself with meat." "Yes," said the

Sheep, "if I should bring you the draught, you would doubtless

make me provide the meat also."

Hypocritical speeches are easily seen through.
