The Monkey and the Lion

In a very large jungle, live a monkey and a lion.

They are quite a pair, they are.

 

The monkey is always getting in the lion’s way,

With his antics and his play.

 

Try as he might to stay out of the lion’s way,

The monkey fails.

 

The lion is a friendly sort and feels sorry for the monkey.

He knows it is not a good thing to feel like a failure all the time.

 

After all, the monkey is just being a monkey

And doing what monkey’s do.

 

The lion decided to teach the monkey that he is not failing.

He does what he does because he is who he is.

 

How would he ever convince him?

How could he show the monkey that being himself is okay?

 

“Ahhh Haa! A plan have I,” said the lion as he roars out his delight.

“I’ll let him see the monkey in me. He knows I never fail.”

 

The monkey will see the “monkey” in me

And realize the “lion” in him.

 

The monkey and the lion live in a very large jungle.

They are quite a pair, they are.

 

The moral of the story: be yourself.

There is a bit of monkey and lion in all of us.

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. (Phil 4:8)
