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.'
