ANOTHER GOAT FABLE – THE PAMPERED GOAT

The pampered goat dismissed the butler, all six footmen, her personal servant, and both parlor maids with a wave of her hoof. The help withdrew, bowing, from the palatial dining room. The pampered goat studied her reflection in the great mirror on the gilded wall, noting with satisfaction the fiery gleam of her ruby necklace.

She moved with stately grace from the dining room and ascended the curving marble staircase. She advanced down the long hallway to the nursery. Opening the door, she announced, ‘All right, children. No more dillydallying. Nap time is over. Time to get ready to go to the park.’

Moral: A pampered goat can nevertheless be a nanny.
