Monkey and swing
Once upon a time there lived a monkey whose great delight was to swing merrily in the air, a the cost of his meals.
One day while he was swinging away with his little eyes blinking, looking here and there, the whites showing clearly when in ecstasy he would be swinging high and then low, a big cumbersome bear appeared near the swing.
So, seeing the joy which the monkey was experiencing, he asked the monkey, 'Monkey, will you please let me sit on your swing that I may enjoy myself for a little,' but the monkey, when he climbed to the top, secretly gnawed through the ropes in such a way that the swing ropes would not stand much weight.
However, when the monkey came down he said to the bear in quite an offhand way :
'Now I think you can have a try'
So the monkey started to prepare for himself a big meal, saying to himself :
'Soon the bear will swing too high and come down with such a bang that he will surely kill himself, and he will make for me a very sweet meat, as all bear's taste so right and sweet.'
Certainly it was not long before he heard the bear falling and he went at once to the swing only thinking of the meal he hoped to have very shortly.
When he got there, instead of finding a bear which was ded, he found one which was furious and angry. To try and hide his own discomtiture the monkey said to the bear :
'I heard you falling from my swing and so I came running to help you and have brought some food'
However, the bear had seen throught the monkey's wicked device. Lunging at themonkey he only just missed him, but the monkey had to make off up to the tree tops and there wait while he saw the bear eat up the carefully prepared meal he had intended for himself and neither could he now swing.
So the bear adequately turned the tables on the monkey for his wickedness.
