A Lion used to prowl about a field in which Four
Oxen used to dwell. Many a time he tried to attack them;
but whenever he came near they turned their tails to one
another, so that whichever way he approached them he
was met by the horns of one of them. At last, however,
they fell a-quarrelling among themselves, and each went
off to pasture alone in a separate corner of the field. Then
the Lion attacked them one by one and soon made an end
of all four.
Moral Lesson: United we stand, divided we fall.
