Fabula Facilis: Lupus et Puer Mendax

Puer mendax patris gregem pascit.
Hic puer libenter alios ludificatur.
Aliquando ingentem clamorem tollit,
"Auxilio venite; lupus adest!"
Rustici propere accurrunt,
et puer eos ridet.
Proximo mense,
puer hunc dolum repetit.
Paulo post, re vera lupus apparet.
Iam rursus clamat,
"Auxilio venite; lupus adest!"
At nemo accurrit.
Maiore voce clamat, lacrimat, eiulat;
frustra omnia.
Rustici dicunt,
"Tertium nos decipere vult."
Ita lupus in gregem irrumpit
et plurimas oves dilaniat.

This story is based on 76. Lupus et Puer Mendax.
