The Fighting Cocks & the Eagle – Aesop’s Fables

The Fighting Cocks & the Eagle

Once upon a time, in a barnyard, there were two fighting cocks who were well-known for their fierce battles. They were both determined to prove their worth and establish themselves as the champion of the barnyard.

One day, the two fighting cocks had a fierce battle that lasted for hours. The two were so evenly matched that neither could gain an advantage over the other. Just as one of the fighting cocks was about to be defeated, an eagle swooped down from above and carried him off in its talons.

The other cock was left standing alone in the barnyard, victorious but without a worthy opponent. As the days went by, the victorious cock began to realize that without a worthy opponent, there was no one left to prove himself against. He soon became bored and restless, longing for the excitement of battle once again.

As time passed, the victorious cock’s strength began to diminish, and he grew weaker and weaker without a challenge to keep him in shape. He realized too late that his wish for victory had come with unforeseen consequences, and that he had lost something far more valuable than a simple victory in battle.

The moral of the story is that sometimes, what we wish for may not be what we really need, and that we should be careful what we wish for as it may come with unforeseen consequences.
