Morals for kids – Aesop’s Fables – The Hens
Never Judge one and other.
Once upon a time, there was a farm full of hens. Some were fat, and some were skinny. The fat hens were always making fun of the skinny hens.
Fat Hen 1: Cluck, cluck … Ha, ha, ha, ha … look at those skinny hens! Cluck, cluck.
Fat Hen 2: They don’t have food to eat! Cluck, cluck Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha They look sick…and so pale! Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, cluck, cluck.
Fat Hen 1: I’m giving a party tonight in my hen house… and you are invited!
Fat Hen 2: Just don’t invite those skinny, little, ugly hens!
Fat Hen 1: Of course not! I’m not inviting them… the party is just for us… fine and healthy hens!
Fat Hen 1, 2: Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, cluck, cluck.
But the Cooks of the farm had another plan.
Cook 1: How many hens do you have for the soup?
Cook 2: How many do you need?
Cook 1: I need only two… but I need them fat!
Cook 2: Let me get them.
Cook 1: Hurry up… the water is boiling already.
The cook left the kitchen and went looking for the hens. Meanwhile in the hen house.
Skinny Hen 1: What are you going to do tonight?
Skinny Hen 2: Nothing… did you know that there’s a party going on right now… and we were not invited?
Skinny Hen 1: Why do you think so?
Skinny Hen 2: Maybe it’s because of the way we look… you know… skinny.
Meanwhile, at the party, the two fat hens were having a lot of fun.
Fat Hen 1: La, la, la, la, tra, la, tra, la, tra, la, cluck, cluck.
Fat Hen 2: I love that song!
Suddenly the cook entered and pointed at the two hens.
Cook: You … and you … beautiful hens, come over here!
Fat Hen 1 and 2: Oh, no!
Fat Hen 1: I wish I were skinny!
Fat Hen 2: Me too!
Don’t despise the weak and insignificant, maybe they are luckier than us.
