The Parable of the Hippo-Crite

“Nothing happened! Stop spreading fake news. The lion did not kill any animal. The young deer and its friends are telling these baseless allegations in a bid to dethrone the king of the jungle.”

The hyena continued, “We will not allow any animal, young or old, to disrupt the peace and prosperity that we are enjoying. Young deer, gazelle, elephant and their friends must be held accountable for their actions in the failed coup.” Continue reading “The Parable of the Hippo-Crite”

A young deer asked its mother, “Why do we run from the lion? Should we not be brave enough to challenge it? How can we be fugitives in our land? This can’t continue!
