THE FLIES AND THE POT OF HONEY

A POT of Honey was upset in the pantry, and the Flies crowded about to eat of it. It was so sticky that they could not get away. Their feet were held fast, so that they could not fly, and they began to choke to death.

"What wretches we are," they cried, "to die just for a moment of pleasure!"

So it is that greediness is the cause of many evils.
