The Hawk and the Farmer
Posted October 16, 2012on:
While chasing pigeons, a hawk was flying over the farmer’s cornfield. Before he could make out, he found himself trapped in the net. The farmer was observing the hawk trying hard to flee away from the net.
He went over to the captive bird of prey.
The hawk said to the farmer as he got near: “I was just chasing a pigeon. This is all by mistake. The fortunate pigeon flew right over your field. I was not going to do a bit of harm to your cornfield. Believe me, sir!”
“That may be,” replied the farmer. “But I doubt what you are saying. I am afraid I am going to twist your neck.”
