Rat



"Don't be overconfident. It only leads to failure," his mother explained.

The young haughty Rat replied, "Chill Mom. Nothing will happen. I am an expert in stealing food. Have I ever been caught?"

The poor mother sighed and prayed God to help her son.

Rat went out to satisfy his hunger. At a distance he saw a large piece of cheese.

"Wow," he thought, and leapt at it.

"Thud!"

For a split second his mind went blank, and then the truth dawned upon him. He was trapped. The cheese was a bait to bring him to the dark cage.
