The Wolf and the Kid
A kid was once happily skipping home from the pasture, long after the rest of the flock. He was all alone and the path did have some danger.
So before long a Wolf appeared from behind the bushes, crouched and ready to pounce. The Kid knew that he had no escape except to run and then be outrun, but instead of doing that, he decided to stay and talk to the Wolf: “I know, dear friend, that you are going to kill me. But before I die I would ask you one favour. Please play a tune for me to dance to.”
The Wolf thought it was a strange request but agreed anyway and started to play a tune. While he was piping and the kid dancing, some dogs heard the sounds of the pipe. Growling and grinding their teeth they followed the sounds and before the song ended, began chasing the Wolf. Running now for his life, the Wolf said to the Kid, “This is just what I deserve; how could I have tried to be a piper to please you when I am only a butcher!”
