“It takes no brains to be a farmer,” pontificated City Mouse. “Anyone could do it.”
“Yes?” replied Country Mouse. “Tell me, what would you do if you were faced with a months-long drought? Or a plague of locusts? Or daily dust storms? Tornadoes? Endless rain? Broken machinery? Disease spreading in the wheat or corn? Cows drying up, unable to feed their young? Chickens that don’t lay? Hogs that sicken and die?”
“Easy!” puffed City Mouse. “I’d simply go to the nearest grocery store and buy what I need.”
Country Mouse grinned, shook his head, and went back to work.
