An old man, a boy & a donkey were going to town.
The boy rode on the donkey & the old man walked.
As they went along they passed some people who remarked
it was a shame the old man was walking and the boy was riding.
The man and boy thought maybe the critics were right,
so they changed positions.
Then, later, they passed some people who remarked,
“What a shame, he makes that little boy walk.”
So they then decided they’d both walk!
Soon they passed some more people who thought
they were stupid to walk when they had a decent donkey to ride.
So, they both rode the donkey. Now they passed some people
who shamed them by saying how awful to put such
a load on a poor donkey.
The boy and man figured they were probably right,
so they decide to carry the donkey. As they crossed the bridge,
they lost their grip on the animal & he fell into the river and drowned.
The moral of the story?
Never try please everybody…you can’t.
Do what you think
is best for you.
