Once a pair of sparrows
saw a monkey sitting by,
shivering in pouring rain
as wind and drops lashed him
from side to side.
The male spoke first,
being a kind soul he said,
“Oh monkey! you should my dear,
build a shelter for yourself!”
the monkey grimaced and ignored him.
Next it was the female’s turn,
being the sweet one she softly said,
“Oh dear! look at you shivering,
if only you had …”
The monkey pounced upon their nest
and ripped it to pieces.
This is what happens if you
try to help everyone around you,
not everyone is meant for help,
not everyone understands generosity,
some mock, some taunt and some bite
the hand that feeds!
Have a great day!
