The Fable of the Hen and the Wild Turkey

A take on a classic fable with different animals, this one serves to expose similar ideas with more modern subtleties. The hen lives inside the coop, a comfortable prisoner, but the turkey, who is free, lives a life full of risk.

    I like your blog on the fable of a Frog and a Scorpion. It is quite a reflection of our world after WW2.

        In French literature, its equivalent is the donkey asking its master to share his small hut.

      “Boiling frog” and “The Emperor’s New Clothes” are good, too.

    Boiling frogs relate to the tax donkeys, Emperor’s New Clothes to propaganda and mass self delusion while the Scorpion to (((them))).

      Agreed. Scorpion could also be muslims and other immigrants who needs to be saved (from themselves).
      Boiling frogs could also relate to Europeans accepting the invasion of our homelands.
      Many meanings only make the stories better 🙂
