The Cunning Fox - Aesop Fables

Once upon a time in a jungle, there lived a crow on a tree. One day he found a big piece of bread. He took the bread in his beak and flew back to his home on the tree. Just then a hungry fox came by. Looking at the huge piece of bread in the crow’s beak, his mouth started watering.
“Hello my friend” he said to the crow, “I too am hungry. Can i have a small piece of that bread?” The crow ignored his request and did not give anything to the fox.
Then the cunning fox got an idea. He said,” My friend, Every morning i wake up listening to your sweet voice, you sing so well. Please sing a song for me right now.”

The foolish crow felt happy listening to this compliment and started singing for the fox. Just as he opened his mouth, the piece of bread fell to the ground and the cunning fox grabbed it and ran away. The foolish crow remained hungry that day.

MORAL:  Never believe in any false praise.
