325 - The Ass and the Old Shepherd

Back
Next

 
 


A Shepherd, watching his ass feeding in a meadow, was alarmed all of a sudden by the cries of the enemy. 

He appealed to the Ass to fly with him, lest they should both be captured, but the animal lazily replied:

-Why should I, pray? Do you think it likely the conqueror will place on me two sets of panniers?-

-No- rejoined the shepherd.-

-Then,- said the ass, -as long as I carry the panniers, what matters it to me whom I serve?-


In a change of government, a change without importance does not go at all beyond the change of the name of the chief.
