J&D Fables: Anseres et Grues

Today's podcast is the audio for one of the fables in Jacobs & Doering's Latin Reader which you can find online at the Aesopus wiki). You can find out more about this particular fable at my Aesop website.
In eodem quondam prato
pascebantur anseres et grues.
Adveniente domino prati,
grues facile avolabant:
sed anseres,
impediti corporis gravitate,
deprehensi et mactati sunt.
Sic saepe pauperes
cum potentioribus
in eodem crimine deprehensi,
soli dant poenam,
dum illi
salvi evadunt.
