The Ram and the Bull, by Uhr-Kulmbizharr

Once upon a time, there was a proud ram of strong stature, with curved horns and a harem of female goats. So many rivals contesting his power did he beat, that he started to believe himself invincible. The proud ram began to challenge the alpha males of other herds, and clashed with them to conquer their grazing grounds and minions. The ram knew nothing but success.

One day, the ram came across a bull at a river ford.

"Make way, or I'll trample your herd," snorted the bull.

"Back off, for I and my ilk will be first to cross," replied the ram.

The bull refused, so the ram challenged him to combat at the ford. Headlong they charged at each other, and the ram was crushed to a gory pulp by the greater creature. This is the fate of those who cannot recognize when they face too strong an adversary to overcome, and stubbornly seeks their own doom.

- The Ram and the Bull, by Daemonsmith Uhr-Kulmbizharr the Blind, the renowned Chaos Dwarf author of fable stories during the foundation of Zharr-Naggrund*

____________________________________________
* The moral of the story would sit sourly with uncorrupted western Dwarfs, yet Dawi Zharr, stubborn though they might be, have bitterly learned to survive and thrive in the volatile and hostile Dark Lands. This would not have been the case without a cultural emphasis on choosing to fight on terms to their advantage whenever possible, lest the work of generations may be squandered by a single leader's foolhardy pride. This is one amongst many reasons why Chaos Dwarfs manage to dominate, crush and enslave the Greenskin hordes, while the holds of uncorrupted Dwarfs one by one falls to the very same menace.

@Bloodbeard: Haha, rubbing it in, are you? Wink

@Abecedar: Let's hope not!

Thanks guys! Oddly, it seems pretty much no one has been writing new fables the last century or so. So this is something of a revival of a genre, with a dark twist. Cheers!
