Piglet, the Sheep, and the Goat

posted in Goat, Miscellaneous |

A young Pig was shut up in a yard with a Goat and a Sheep. On one occasion when the shepherd laid hold of him, the Pig grunted and squeaked and resisted violently.

The Sheep and the Goat complained of his distressing cries, saying, “He often handles us, and we do not cry out.”

To this the Piglet replied, “Your handling and mine are very different things. He catches you only for your wool, or your milk, but he lays hold on me for my very life.”

Moral: Don’t complain about something you cannot understand.

    “First they came for the Jews, and I did not complain because I was not a Jew. Then they came for the Gypsies, and I did not complain because I was not a Gypsy. Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me.”
