But one day it found the skin of a sheep that had been flayed and </p><p>thrown aside, so it put the skin on over its own pelt and strolled down among the sheep. </p><p>The Lamb that belonged to the sheep whose skin the Wolf was wearing, began to follow the </p><p>Wolf in the Sheeps clothing; so, leading the Lamb a little apart, he soon made a meal of her, </p><p>and for some time he succeeded in deceiving the sheep, and enjoying hearty meals. </p><p> A Lion used to prowl about a field in which Four Oxen used to dwell. Many a time he </p><p>tried to attack them; but whenever he came near they turned their tails to one another, so </p><p>that whichever way he approached them he was met by the horns of one of them. At last, </p><p>however, they fell to quarrelling amongst themselves, and each went off to a separate </p><p>pasture, alone, each in a separate corner of the field. Then the Lion attacked them one by </p><p>one and soon made an end of all four. </p></li><li><p> CREDITS: Jill Pavich, NBCT jill.pavich@palmbeachschools.org AICE: General Paper 8004 Boca Raton Community High School, PBCSD </p><p>The Farmer and the Snake </p><p>MORAL MESSAGE: _________________________________________________________________________________________ </p><p>The Farmer and the Cranes </p><p>MORAL MESSAGE: _________________________________________________________________________________________ </p><p> One winter a Farmer found a Snake stiff and frozen with cold. He had compassion </p><p>on it, and taking it up, placed it in his bosom. The Snake quickly revived by the warmth, and </p><p>resuming its natural instincts, but its benefactor, inflicting on him a mortal wound. Oh, </p><p>cried the Farmer with his last breath, I am rightly served for pitying a scoundrel. </p><p> Some Cranes made their feeding grounds on some plow-lands newly sown with </p><p>wheat. For a long time the Farmer, brandishing an empty sling, chased them away by the </p><p>terror he inspired; but when the birds found that the sling was only swung in the air, they </p><p>ceased to take any notice and would not move. The Farmer, on seeing this, charged his </p><p>sling with stones, and killed a great number. The remaining birds at once forsook his fields, </p><p>crying to each other, It is time for us to be off to Liliput: for this man is no longer content to </p><p>scare us, but begins to show us in earnest what he can do. </p></li><li><p> CREDITS: Jill Pavich, NBCT jill.pavich@palmbeachschools.org AICE: General Paper 8004 Boca Raton Community High School, PBCSD </p><p>Connecting to GP Prompts: Violence is the only weapon for those that are oppressed.
