The Vainglorious Cockerel
Two cockerels fought on a dung heap. One cockerel was the stronger; he vanquished the other. All the hens gathered around the cockerel, and began to laud him. The cockerel wanted his strength and glory to be known in the next yard. He flew on top of the barn, flapped his wings, and crowed in a loud voice: “Look at me, all of you. I am a victorious cockerel. No other cockerel in the world has such strength as I.” The cockerel had not finished, when an eagle killed him, seized him in his claws, and carried him to his nest for dinner.
