THE INVINCIBLE COCK

Once there was a Cock.
One day while peck pecking he found a gold coin. He perched on the roof and cried out
“Cock-a-doodle-doo! I’ve found gold”
The king heard it, ordered his men to go, grab the coin and bring it to him.
The king” s men went, grabbed the gold coin and brought it to the king.
The cock called out
“Cock-a-doodle-doo… the king lives on my account”
The king ordered his men to take the gold coin back to the cock.
“Take that money back to that good-for-nothing cock or else he will bring shame upon us”
The kings men took the money back to the cock.
The cock got up on the roof and cried out
“Cock-a-doodle-doo, the king got scared of me”
The king got angry and ordered his men
“Go, fetch that scoundrel, slaughter him, cook him and bring it to me so we may put an end to this mockery”
Presently the king’s men went, caught the cock and while taking him to the palace he cried out
“Cock-a-doodle doo… the king has invited me to his palace.”
They slaughtered the cock put him in hot water to cook
“Cock-a-doodle-doo… the king has sent me to a hot bath.”
Being cooked, they served it at the king’s dinner.
I’m dining with the king, cock-a-doodle-doo… .”
The king chewed it and swallowed it in haste. While passing through the king” s throat he cried out “I’m going through narrow streets, cock-a-doodle-doo… .”
Seeing the cock wouldn’t shut up, the king ordered his men to keep their swords re
“Strike”, he ordered, “if he cries once more.”
The king’s men held their swords ready each on either side.
Presently as cock reached the king’s stomach, he called out
“I was in the world of light, now I’ve fallen into a dark place, cock-adoodle-doo… .”
“Strike.” ordered the king.
The king’s men struck and ripped his stomach open.
The- cock flew out, got on the very top of the roof and cried out
“Cock-a-doodle-doo”
