Story of the wretched man and the ass حکایت مسکین

Story of the wretched man and the ass حکایت مسکین

Bustan Saadi بوستان سعدی

A man left behind on the road, weeping, cried:
“Who more wretched than I in this plain can be spied”?
ز ره باز پس ماندهای میگریست
که مسکین تر از من در این دشت کیست؟
“Oh void of discretion” a burdened ass spoke,
“How long will you Heaven’s oppression provoke?
جهاندیدهای گفتش ای هوشیار
اگر مردی این یک سخن گوش دار
Go tender your thanks, since you ride not a beast,
That you are not an ass under people, at least”!
برو شکر کن چون به خر برنهای
که آخر بنی آدمی، خر نهای
