The Flea And The Man
A Man, very much annoyed with a Flea, caught him at last, and said,
"Who are you who dare to feed on my limbs, and to cost me so much
trouble in catching you?' The Flea replied, "O my dear sir, pray spare
my life, and destroy me not, for I cannot possibly do you much harm."
The Man, laughing, replied, "Now you shall certainly die by mine own
hands, for no evil, whether it be small or large, ought to be tolerated."
