Might is Right

Once a lion became very thirsty and came to a stream to quench his thirst. Suddenly he found a lamb drinking down stream. The lion wanted to eat the flesh of the lamb. He hit upon a plan to deceive the lamb and shouted, “You rogue, how dare you make water dirty for me?” The lamb began to tremble in fear. He said, “Excuse me, sir, how can I make the water dirty for you? You are drinking upstream and I am drinking down.” The lion could not say anything to that but shouted, “Oh, I remember, you called me bad names last year about this time.” “How can that be, sir?” said the lamb meekly. “I was not even born then.” But the lion paid no heed to this reply. He growled angrily, “Then it must be your father. And it made no difference whether it was you or your father.” Saying so the lion sprang upon the poor lamb and ate him up.
