The Cunning Crow’s Melodic Trick

A crow perched on a sturdy tree branch, a succulent piece of meat clutched in its beak. As a sly fox strolled beneath the tree, its eyes gleamed with greed.

“Dear crow,” the fox purred, “your voice is said to be the sweetest in the land. Won’t you sing for me?”

The crow, wise to the fox’s tricks, didn’t want to lose its prize. It placed the meat beneath its feet and let out a melodious tune.

As the crow sang, the fox’s desire grew, but it couldn’t snatch the meat without the crow dropping it. Dejected, the fox finally slinked away, outfoxed by the cunning crow.
