Fabula Facilis: Asinus Leonis Pelle Indutus

Asinus in silvam venit,
ubi pellem leonis offendit.
Pelle leonis indutus,
asinus in pascua redit:
ecce, greges territat,
et armenta fugat!
Herus autem asinum quaerit,
"Ubi es tu,
vagus et fallax asinus?!"
asino occurrit.
Asinus herum videt,
et, cum rugitu, obviam facit.
At herus eius auriculas prehendit,
"Auriculas tuas exstantes video;
asini vero auriculae sunt,
non leonis.
Alios fallere potes,
sed ego te probe nosco!"

This story is based on 234. Asinus Leonis Pelle Indutus.
