The Flea and The Ox
A flea was once making fun of an ox. The flea said, “You are so big and strong. Even then you suffer the enslavement by humans. Look at me. I am so small, yet I annoy human beings. I also suck their blood at my will”. The ox said, “I am grateful to human beings. They provide me with good food and care. They often rub my forehead and shoulders”. The flea then said, “To be honest, I am afraid of the rubbing by human beings. When a man rubs me he rubs me to put me to death”. The flea agreed with the ox that the ox was lucky to get so much comfort in lieu of his services to the humans.
