The Wolf and the Sheep
A WOLF, being sick and maimed, called to a Sheep, who was passing, and asked him to fetch some water from the stream.
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.
