The Donkey And The Lion’s Skin

Kiddle Tales | Donkey in Lion's Skin

Once Upon a time in a village, there was a Donkey. The donkey was very lazy and was hungry. One day, Donkey found a lion’s skin.
Donkey-iconDonkeyOh, Look at that! It’s the lion skin. Let me put it on
He put it on and looked at his reflection in the river
Donkey-iconDonkeyWow! I look just like a lion! No one can see that it is me. I must take advantage of this
The donkey wore the skin and marched him to the village. Obviously, seeing a lion in the village, the village got scared and started running helter-skelter. They left their stores and kiosks open. A woman dropped the baskets full of hay and fruits on the road, grabbed their children and locked themselves indoors.
Donkey-iconDonkeyThis is so much fun! The villagers have left their food and belongings out here in the open for me to feast on.
The donkey ate as much as he wanted to and grabbed his loot and went back into the jungle. For the next few days he relaxed and enjoyed what he had brought from the village. When his supply ran out wearing the lion skin he walked into the village once again. The villagers once again ran at the sight of the lion and the donkey gathered his loot. This went on for many days. Every time he was successful, the donkey’s confidence grew.
Old-man-iconOld Man (Villager)We must do something about this lion.
Sheriff-iconSherifWhat can we do?
Old-man-iconOld Man (Villager)Let us follow him and see where he goes.
And so, the villagers decided to follow what they thought was the lion. The donkey was particularly happy that day after plundering the village. Still wearing the lion’s skin he went straight to the wheat fields and started singing loudly. The villagers who were behind him recognized his braying.
Old-man-iconOld Man (Villager)It is not a lion.. It is a donkey! Braying in a lion’s skin.

Sheriff-iconSherifI see. We will teach him a lesson.
The villages caught hold of the donkey and beat him mercilessly.
So you see. It is not enough to pretend to be what you are. One must genuinely be what they say they are. Otherwise, their true nature will start showing and people will recognize their lie.
