Cry Wolf cries wolf thirty odd times. It cries wolf with the trapped miner, the lone herder, the locked up dissenter, the downtrodden people, the family of the dying and the dead, the hungry body, the thirsty soul, the mother robbed of her child, the abused child. Because the wolf is there, and the world so busy, weary or deaf that even the wolf cries wolf.
