Aesop's Fables

The Lion And The Wild Ass

A Lion and a Wild Ass went out hunting together: the latter was to run down the prey by his superior speed, and the former would then come up and despatch it.
      
      They met with great success; and when it came to sharing the spoil the Lion divided it all into three equal portions.
      
      "I will take the first," said he, "because I am King of the beasts; I will also take the second, because, as your partner, I am entitled to half of what remains; and as for the third - well, unless you give it up to me and take yourself off pretty quick, the third, believe me, will make you feel very sorry for yourself!"

Moral: Might makes right.
