AESOP'S FABLES

The Wagon Driver and Hercules – AESOP’S FABLES (the gods help those who help themselves)

A wagon driver cursed his luck

With tears of rage and pain

To see his wagon tightly stuck

Upon a muddy lane.


“O Hercules! O Hercules!”

He called a strong old god.

“Come to my aid! Release me, please,

With your almighty rod!”

 

And Hercules, out of the sky,

Came down at this appeal.

“O Man,” he roared, “why not apply

Your shoulder to the wheel?

 

“By heave and jerk and push and shove

You’ll get the wagon through!

You should not crave from powers above

What your own arms can do.”

  1. I’m not certain the place you are getting your information, but great topic. I must spend a while learning much more or figuring out more. Thanks for excellent info I was on the lookout for this info for my mission.

    1. From a very old book, wasn’t very well stored/kept, so I am reading it and saving/sharing to my blog. I have been very busy with my job, but I will keep reading and sharing.
