The Tortoise and the Geese.

Once upon a time besides a lake, there lived a tortoise and two geese who were great friends. As the lake was drying, the geese decided to migrate to a new place. The tortoise also wanted to move with them after trying really hard to convince them, finally, the geese agreed. They held a stick with their beaks and asked the tortoise to hold the stick with his mouth and warned him to not open his mouth in order to avoid letting go off the stick.


As they flew high, some onlookers thought that the tortoise was kidnapped and commented: ‘’ oh, the poor tortoise’’. This angered the tortoise and he immediately his mouth to say something back. As soon as he did, he fell to the ground and died.


Moral thought: Think before you speak and always listen to instructions.
