The Tale of the Maggot and the Tick

  March 2nd, 2007

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.
