Prayer or Coincidence?
Grasshopper was struggling to free himself from the crow’s beak, moaning all the while. “Why me? Why do terrible things always happen to me? Surely I will live only a few more moments. If I had lived there were so many things I wanted to do.”
Then Grasshopper offered up a prayer in the hope he would be saved. “O Great Grasshopper, if you will save me, I promise to correct my bad habits and do whatever you want me to do. Surely I was not meant to die as take-out for some crow.”
Just then 2 crows who routinely made their living stealing from others, decided they wanted Grasshopper for themselves. So the 2 crows attacked, and in defending himself, the first crow dropped Grasshopper. As Grasshopper fell to the ground, all 3 crows lost interest. The first crow had become angry and the 2 robber crows, now, had to protect themselves.
