Short Story on "Flattery Injures the Most"

Once a crow got a piece of bread and sat on a tree to eat it. A hungry fox who was passing by saw the crow with the piece of bread and wanted to have it. She began to flatter the crow by saying, “Mr. Crow! you have a lovely face and shining plumes. You have a sweet voice and when you sing. The melody enchants I am dying to hear your sweet, melodious song. Please sing me a song and oblige.”

Gullible and a simpleton as (he crow was, he believed the fox as thought himself to be a great singer. So he began to caw. As soon as his beak opened, the piece of bread fell down and the fox, picking it up, took it way.
