Fabula Facilis: Anguis et Milvus

Milvus anguem rapit.
In altum volat, anguem ferens.
At anguis repente conversus est
et milvum morsu ferit et interficit.
Anguis tunc morienti milvo dicit,
"Tam stultus es tu!
Ego tibi nullam iniuriam feci,
sed me laedis ac ad mortem rapis.
Ecce: merito eadem refers
quae mihi facere parabas."

This story is based on 621. Anguis et Milvus.
Corvus et Serpens
