Fabula Facilis: Haedus in Tecto et Lupus

Haedus stat
parte superiori altissimae domūs,
et lupum videt praetereuntem.
Haedus eum conviciis insectatur,
et lupus haedo respondet,
"Non tu mihi convicia haec ingeris,
sed locus in quo degis."
Fabula significat:
Contra potentiores
et locus et tempus audaciam addunt.

This story is based on 329. Haedus in Tecto et Lupus.
