The torrent came and took the boy awayC
The net brought every time a fishD
This time the fish went and carried off the netE
The other fishermen were sorry and blamed him for not being able to retain such a fish which had fallen into his net He replied O brothers what can be done My day was not lucky but the fish had yet one remaining Moral A fisherman cannot catch a fish in the Tigris without a day of luck and a fish cannot die on dry ground without the decree of fateF
