The Wolf and the Lion

A WOLF, having stolen a lamb from a fold, was carrying it off to his lair. A Lion met him in the path, and seizing the lamb, took it from him. Standing at a safe distance, the Wolf exclaimed, "You have unrighteously taken that which was mine!"

To which the Lion jeeringly replied, "It was righteously yours, eh? The gift of a friend?"

"Yes!" replied the wolf. "I was merely borrowing it. And now because of you I will be unable to return it!"

"Liar!" declared the Lion.

The Wolf, very agitated, announced, "I will eat your firstborn!" and disappeared into the woods.
