Fabula Facilis: Taurus et Culex

Culex tauri cornu occupat,
"Volo te deprimere onere meo!"
Sed taurus culicem neglegit.
Extremis viribus exploratis,
culex avolare cupit,
et tauro dicit,
"Si molestus sum tibi,
te levabo onere meo,
Taurus respondet,
"Te non sensi accedentem,
nec sentio te rursus abientem."

This story is based on 292. Taurus et Culex.
