295 - The Playful Ass



An Ass climbed up to the roof of a building, and frisking about there, broke in the tiling. 

The owner went up after him and quickly drove him down, beating him severely with a thick wooden cudgel. 

The Ass said, 

"Why, I saw the Monkey do this very thing yesterday, and you all laughed heartily, as if it afforded you very great amusement."

Work always for what you have prepared yourself, do not do what is not of your occupation.
