Cock And Jackal





Cock, it is said, was once overtaken by Jackal, and caught. Cock said to

Jackal, "Please, pray first (before you kill me), as the white man

does."



Jackal asked, "In what manner does he pray? Tell me."



"He folds his hands in praying," said Cock. Jackal folded his hands and

prayed. Then Cock spoke again: "You ought not to look about you as you

do. You had better shut your eyes." He did so; and Cock flew away,

upbraiding at the same time Jackal with these words, "You rogue! do you

also pray?"



There sat Jackal, speechless, because he had been outdone.
