The Fox and The Mosquitoes

A fox rationalizes that he’d rather full mosquitoes bother him than hungry ones.

There were politicians in Aesop’s time.

Fox and Mosquitoes

Being plagues with Mosquitoes on day
Said old Fox: “pray don’t send them away,
For a hungrier swarm
Would work me more harm;
I had rather the full ones should stay.”
