The Sheep took centre stage on the chamber floor. As they displayed their prize, the Senators gasped.
“This is an outrage!” exclaimed the Cow.
The Pig shook his head. “This will close all negotiations. It’s a declaration of war!”
The Sheep retorted, “You cannot negotiate with tyrants.”
The Horse neighed, “Our brethren are worked to death or slaughtered, there is no compromise with the Farmers!”
“This is a war we cannot win.”
The Sheep assented, “True. So we take what is most precious.”
The Senate cheered as they gazed at the Farmer’s daughter’s head as it rested on the pike.
