FABLE 163: THE BEE AND JUPITER
A Queen Bee journeyed to Mount Olympus, to offer Jupiter a pot of her hive’s finest honey. Delighted with her gift, Jupiter promised to grant any request she desired. “Give me a sting,” she replied. “So that if any mortal attempts to steal my honey, I may kill him.” Jupiter loved mankind, and was disappointed by the Bee’s spiteful wish. “You may have your request,” he answered, “but when you strike another, you will leave your sting behind, and it will cost you your life.”
Evil wishes, like chickens, come home to roost.
