Aesop: 182 Plucked Clean

A man whose hair was turning grey had two mistresses, one young and the other old. The old one was ashamed of having a younger man make love to her, and when he came to her she kept pulling out the black hairs from his head. The young women, who did not like the idea of having an old man for a lover, used to pull out his grey hairs. So between them they ended by making him completely bald.

Ill-assorted companions never come by any good.
