Aesop's Fables

The Beekeeper

A Thief found his way into an apiary when the Beekeeper was away, and stole all the honey. When the Keeper returned and found the hives empty, he was very much upset and stood staring at them for some time.
      
      Before long the bees came back from gathering honey, and, finding their hives overturned and the Keeper standing by, they made for him with their stings.
      
      At this he fell into a passion and cried, "You ungrateful scoundrels, you let the thief who stole my honey get off scot-free, and then you go and sting me who have always taken such care of you!"

Moral: When you hit back make sure you have got the right man.
