Eagle



The jungle was supposed to be democratic, but who would teach that to the Eagle. The animals were scared of him. The Eagle preyed on rabbits and squirrels, and even the larger species, not even sparing their little children.

The Eagle became very proud and wanted to rule the universe. He thus challenged the sun. With it's sharp gaze, it promised to bring the sun under its control. However, his overconfidence and stupid pride lead to the burning of his eyes. The Eagle turned blind.

Now, the Eagle is held captive in the jungle, powerless. Evil never lasts long.

  6. Loved this one too. In today's scenario, when we Homo sapiens are at a loss of morals I think your idea of relating animals and morals is absolutely great!
