Length 20min.

Country Armenia/Russia


His family- his wife and new born son,
Rely only on a cow,
For, the cow is their only means of living.
Though, this cow did not survive to the first day of our story:
A hungry wolf tore the cow into pieces.
For the wolf had nothing else to feed on,
As the humans had destroyed all the game.
Thus, Nelson exchanges all his medals
For three cartridges with his evil brother,
Who lives richly,
In the expense of those who suffer.
To buy their gold for pennies, that’s his approach.
The fur of three wolves and a deer is the price for a new cow.
With a gun, Nelson angrily leaves for the forest,
Like a wolf, he looks for someone to kill,
As a way of relieving himself from his sorrows.
The moral of the story is this: When a man is compassionless, he is a best.
But when a beast has compassion, what do we call him?
