The Goose and The Golden Egg
There once was a Countryman
who possessed the most wonderful Goose you can imagine.
Every day when he visited the nest,
the Goose had laid a beautiful,
glittering, golden egg!
The Countryman took the eggs to market
and soon began to get rich!
But it was not long
before he grew impatient with the Goose
because she gave him only a single golden egg each day.
He was not getting rich fast enough.
Then one day,
after he had finished counting his money,
the idea came to him
that he could get all the golden eggs at once
by killing the Goose
and cutting it open.
But when he killed the goose,
not a single golden egg did he find,
and his precious Goose was dead.!!!
Those who have plenty want more and more,
and they end up losing everything they have.
