One day, the king threw a party for all the domestic animals. He told the cow to sit at the edge of the table and share out the food because she was the biggest of all the animals present. The cow agreed to do so. But when she passed out the first course, she forgot the fly. He complained to the cow who said, “be patient”.
When the second course arrived, the fly called out again. But the cow just pointed to her eye and to the fly to look there, and he would get food later. In the end, the fly went to bed without food. The next day, the fly complained to the king. The king thought, the cow had done wrong not to give the fly a share, so she told the fly that in the future, he should always get food from the cow’s eyes.
