The Wolf and the Sheep

A Wolf, sorely wounded and bitten by dogs, lay sick and maimed in his lair. Being in want of food, he called to a Sheep who was passing, and asked him to fetch some water from a stream flowing close beside him. 'For,' he said, 'if you will bring me drink, I will find means to provide myself with meat.' 'Yes,' said the Sheep, 'if I should bring you the draught, you would doubtless make me provide the meat also.'
Hypocritical speeches are easily seen through.
