"The Lioness and the Gazelle"

One day there was a Lioness. The lioness could no longer easily hunt since she had left her pride. The Lioness was so hungry she wished she had all the food in the valley. So one day she took one of her gazelle skins from a previous hunt, which was many moons ago, and slipped it on. The Lioness then went to a herd of gazelle and once they has gotten used to him ate every last one. The Lioness repeated this with every herd she came across. Soon there were no more gazelle. The Lioness had no other skins so she could not hunt anything else. The Lioness grew thinner and thinner, and hungrier and hungrier until she gave up and died of starvation.


Moral: Be careful what you wish for!
