<h2>THE WOLF AND THE LAMB</h2>
<p>A Wolf came upon a Lamb straying from the flock, and felt some
compunction about taking the life of so helpless a creature without
some plausible excuse; so he cast about for a grievance and said at
last, "Last year, sirrah, you grossly insulted me." "That is
impossible, sir," bleated the Lamb, "for I wasn't born then."
"Well," retorted the Wolf, "you feed in my pastures." "That cannot
be," replied the Lamb, "for I have never yet tasted grass." "You
drink from my spring, then," continued the Wolf. "Indeed, sir,"
said the poor Lamb, "I have never yet drunk anything but my
mother's milk." "Well, anyhow," said the Wolf, "I'm not going
without my dinner": and he sprang upon the Lamb and devoured it
without more ado.</p>
