The Grasshopper And The Ant

It was winter. A grasshopper was hungry. He had no food. He hopped to an ant who had stored some grains for  winter. The grasshopper said, “I am dying from hunger. Will you please give me a few grains of corn?”  The ant said, “Why did you not save for winter? What did you do during summer?” The  grasshopper  said, ” I was very busy in Summer.  All day long  I sang .”  “Now dance”, said the angry ant.
