The War Boar and the Bale Taurus, by Uhr-Kulmbizharr

Once upon a time, there was a strong Bale Taurus with a harem of cows and rich hunting grounds to roam. His rivals did he beat in battle, his enemies did he slay. One day, the fiery bull met a giant War Boar who towered over the rest of his kin.

"We are much alike, you and I," said the War Boar.

"Alike? There is nothing alike between you and me, hog!" snorted the Bale Taurus.

"Oh yes, there is. Our lives are both filled with success, food and females. We lord it over our kinsfolk, and our rivals tremble before our might," replied the War Boar.

"Filthy swine! You are as a maggot unto me, for my strength is greater and my body is larger," said the Bale Taurus.

"Yet we are both first and best amongst our own kind," remarked the War Boar.

"No! I exhale fire and rule the skies whereas you exhale farts and grouts the mud," said the Bale Taurus.

"Yet my strength and hardiness is prized by the strongest of Orcs, who vie to ride upon me into battle," replied the War Boar.

"Insolent piglet! The lords of the earth ride upon my back whilst the masses holds me sacred for my divine strength and virility," growled the Bale Taurus.

"You brag about virility, yet your offspring are born one or two at a time. My litters could drown the lands by their number," said the War Boar.

At this, the Bale Taurus could not retort well, for it was true. He had been bested by words.

"Then they will drown in your blood!" roared the Bale Taurus, and impaled the War Boar with a thunderous charge, for such is the fate of the weaker creature who would seek to best the stronger with his tounge.

Yeah, fables are by their very nature an oddball genre. I've waited long with attempting them, and don't have high expectations. But what the heck, there's not much to lose by testing the waters. Happy

I'll return to more normal stories a bit later on. Anyhow, this fable was inspired by one of Ovid's works.

I think it is funny in that way it turns the usual ending of a tricksy tale into just plain bloodshed. Quite suitable for CDs.


There's a lot more in the wiki than you think, check out the wiki contents

Like a Great Taurus in a Cathay shop.

Haha, true. Happy

Frankly, I'm too simple to get tricksy tales. So there's a tricksy sequence and then often a rush to carnage in not a few of the stories I write (CD or not).
