THE WOLF & THE CRANE

THE WOLF & THE CRANE – AESOP’S FABLES

Translated By George Flyer

A wolf who had a bone stuck in his throat hired a crane, for a large sum to put her head into his mouth & draw out the bone.

When the crane had extracted the bone & demanded the promised payment, the wolf, grinning & grinding his teeth, exclaimed: “why you have surely already had a suffecient recompense in having been permitted to draw our your head in safety from the mouth & jaws of a wolf.”

In serving the wicked, expect no reward, & be thankful if you escape injury for your pains.
