Fidy Says

The Kingdom of the Lion

posted in Lion |

The beasts of the field and forest had a Lion as their king. He was neither wrathful, cruel, nor tyrannical, but was as just and gentle as a king could be.

During his reign he made a royal proclamation for a general assembly of all the birds and beasts, and drew up conditions for a universal league, in which the Wolf and the Lamb, the Panther and the Goat, the Tiger and the Stag, the Dog and the Hare, should live together in perfect peace and unity.

The Hare said, “Oh, how I have longed to see this day, in which the weak shall take their place with impunity by the side of the strong.” And after the Hare said this, he ran for his life.

Moral: It takes more than the ruler’s decree for the subjects to obey.
