The Crow and the Sheep (fable)

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 I thus prolong my life to a good old age.”
