A wolf, a wolf!

Response Poem to David Attenborough – I wrote a while back!

“Crying wolf is a real danger.”

Now, if you may want to know everything…

You may never know what wolves are on.

Tales in fables describe how ghastly they are.

You may assume to carry on for not being one,

The wolf is tough and not amid into vanishing.

Furthermore named wolf, not seen and said by one,

Spotted and slurred by another pack, called sheep.

No plights for me, how many there are into howling.

Alive, as they repeat their shout: “A wolf, a wolf!!”

Not even a burn

not-harmed

In the halfway of our earthly life,
I found myself lost in a gloomy wood
Gone off from the trail; straight to hell
It wasn’t easy battle to fend off danger
It wasn’t known how wild the fire was
Although I managed to walk just through it
And nothing harmed me, not even a burn.

Is the ‘Egg’ big enough for you?

The Goose laid a huge egg, so you won’t need to kill it!

There’s nothing much to say, when every time I try to voice my opinion someone gets upset and revengeful. Using up everything you have at once by insatiable spending on useless stuff. Here’s an Aesop’s Fables or the Aesopica is a vast collection of fables attributed to Aesop, a storyteller believed to have lived in ancient Greece between 620 and 564 BCE.

The Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs, one of the best known Aesop’s Fables

To kill the Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs’ is an idiom used of an unprofitable action motivated by greed. It refers to one of Aesop’s Fables, numbered 87 in the Perry Index.

Aesops Fables The Goose That Laid Golden Egg

Audio Books Published on 12 Aug 2014

A man and his wife owned a very special goose. Every day the goose would lay a golden egg, which made the couple very rich. “Just think,” said the man’s wife, “If we could have all the golden eggs that are inside the goose, we could be richer much faster.” “You’re right,” said her husband, “We wouldn’t have to wait for the goose to lay her egg every day.” So, the couple killed the goose and cut her open, only to find that she was just like every other goose. She had no golden eggs inside of her at all, and they had no more golden eggs.
