The Carabao Got Tired

A carabao got tired of working in the field and told his master he wouldn’t work anymore. He envied the cows that, from morning till night, were just grazing in the grasslands while he, from morning till night, worked hard in the field. From time to time he saw some cows being herded into a big truck and were taken somewhere.

Thinking that the cows were being taken to a field trip, he told his master that he too, wanted to go with the cows so he could see different places. The master agreed. One day a big truck came and he was herded into it along with the other cows. He was full of regrets when they reached their destination. It was the town’s slaughterhouse.
