Fabula Facilis: Canes et Agricola Penuria Laborans

Agricola in ruri hiemat multos dies.
Incipit tandem laborare
penuria rerum necessariarum;
oves interficit,
deinde et capellas,
postremo quoque mactat boves,
et sic habet cibum,
quo sustentet corpusculum,
paene exhaustum inedia.
Canes vident hoc,
quod agricola facit.
Constituunt salutem quaerere fuga,
"Nos diutius victuri non sumus:
herus non parcit bobus quidem,
et boum opera utitur
in opere rustico faciendo."

This story is based on 379. Canes et Agricola Penuria Laborans.
