The Sick Lion
Posted November 23, 2012on:
As we know that the lion is known across the world to be the king of the beasts for its dynamism and verve.
Many years ago, a wicked lion ruled over a jungle somewhere in Africa. One day he didn’t feel like going out of his cave to look for his prey. So he asked a rabbit to spread the message in the jungle that the King is very sick. Hence he wishes all the animals of his kingdom to come to his cave to hear his last wish, before he dies.
The sly fox, did not wish to be first to enter the cave. So he waited near the way in, of lion`s den while the goat, sheep and the calf went inside to receive the last wishes of the king of the beasts.
After some time, the lion seemed to be in better health after eating the goat, sheep and the calf, come out to the mouth of the cave.
Seeing the fox at a safe distance away, he howled: “Why don’t you come in to pay your regards to me, buddy fox?”
The sly fox, who was very clever, replied; “Pardon me, your Majesty ! I did not wish to crowd your den, as I saw many other animals going into your cave, but none coming out. I thought you would not like so many animals at one time. Thus I decided to wait outside in open air, till some of them come out so there could be some space for more animals to come in the cave. Until then I preferred to remain in the open air.”
The wicked lion had no option but to get in his den.
Moral of the Story: Do not believe all you hear.
