The Crow and the Sheep

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 thus I hope to prolong my life to a good old age."
