Don’t Trust A Flatterer
Once a crow stole a piece of meat from a farmer’s house and sat on a branch of a tree. A hungry fox was roaming under the tree. Suddenly the fox saw the piece of meat in the beak of the crow. The fox became very tempted. He wanted to eat the piece of meat. He hit upon a plan and said to the crow, “Ms. Crow, you are looking very beautiful today. Your feathers look very glossy and your eyes look bright.” The sweet words of the fox pleased the crow very much. She lifted her head and try to look beautiful.
The clever fox again said, “I think that your voice must be sweet as you. Please sing a song for me and I may greet you as the Queen of Birds.” At this the foolish crow felt very flattered and agreed to sing a song. But when the crow opened her mouth, the piece of meat fell to the ground. The fox hurriedly grabbed the meat and ate it at once. Then the fox said, “For giving me the delicious meat, I will give you a piece of advice and that is – don’t trust a flatterer.”
