A Greedy Dog And Its Shadow

words:142

            One day a dig stole a piece of meat from a butcher’s shop in the market and ran away with it. On the way he was crossing a bridge over a canal. Suddenly he saw his own shadow in the water. He thought that it was another dog with a piece of meat in his mouth. (Suddenly he looked down at his own reflect image in the water of the canal. He thought that it was another dog with another piece of meat in its mouth.) He was easily tempted to see the piece of meat and thought of having it too. He jumped upon his own shadow with a loud bark. As soon as he opened his mouth, the piece of meat fell into the water. The greedy dog lost his own piece of meat also.

Moral: Grasp all, lose all.
