The farmer and the snake

A Farmer walked through his field one cold winter morning. On the ground lay a Snake, stiff and frozen with the cold. The Farmer knew how deadly the Snake could be, and yet he picked it up and put it in his bosom to warm it back to life.

The Snake soon revived, and when it had enough strength, bit the man who had been so kind to it. The bite was deadly and the Farmer felt that he must die.

“Oh,” cried the Farmer with his last breath, “I am rightly served for pitying a scoundrel.”

    Even after at least 2,500 years some people remain as dumb as ever. I am thinking of all the churches, the pope and other non Muslims sponsoring Muslims, to say nothing of the ludicrous inter-faith groups.

    I wonder if the author has been listening to Trump’s speeches.
