A maggot was feasting on the decaying flesh of a dead king.
Nearby, a tick, who was busy feasting on a living king, called out to the maggot: “Maggot: you’re crazy. Why are you eating from a filthy corpse when you can taste the sweet blood of the living?”
At that moment the king, oppressed by the tick for years, in a fit of despair lit his body on fire.
