 The  Mouse  that  killed  a  Bear
The  bear  watched  the  mouse
 lazily, content, knowing  a  small
  creature  such  as  a  mouse
  could  do  him  no  harm, so
  the  bear  slumbered, secure
 in  the  knowledge  of  his  large
  stature  and  his  rights  as  a  
citizen  of  his  great  country.


The  mouse  worked  quietly, tirelessly
 plotting, scheming, weaving  his  evil
 web  of  deceit  around  the  sleeping
 bear, when  the  bear  awoke  the  mouse
  began  to  cry, he  had  no  land  on
  which  he  could  bow  to  worship  his
  god.
 

The  bear  ever  so  tolerant, in  
his  belief  of  religious  freedom,
 and  secure  in  the  knowledge  of
  his  own  constitutional  rights
  of  religion, gave  the  mouse
  a  parcel  of sacred  land, on
 which  to  build  a  temple  to
 worship  his  god  in.


That  act  of  goodwill  towards
 the  mouse, sadly  was  a  fatal
  mistake  on  the  bears  behalf
  more  and  more  mice  came, bigger
 and  bigger  temples  were  built  
to  worship  their  strange  god  in.


 The  mice  grew  strong  and  became
arrogant,  weakening  the  bear,
demanding  the  bear  worship  the
  mouse's  god  and  live  exactly
 as  they  lived, thus  making  the
  bear  a  religious  and  political
  prisoner  forever.

Do  You  Know  The  Moral  Of  This  Story ?
