The Porcupine and the Snakes | Aesop's Fables | Weekly Wisdom | TWOM

Listen to one of Aesop's Fables, The Porcupine and The Snakes:

Going shares with the Snakes, Porcupine
Said “the best of the bargain is mine;”
Nor would he back down.
When the snakes would disown
The agreement his quills made them sigh.

"Hasty partnerships may be repented of"
