The Squirrel and The Hawk

The Squirrel and The Hawk

The squirrel was out hunting acorns.
He spied a beautiful oak tree with
many acorns scattered within
a few feet of its trunk.
As the squirrel approached,
he noticed a hawk sitting
on one of the branches.
Since the bird was facing
in the opposite direction,
the squirrel decided he
could proceed with caution.
He became more bold as
he glanced up and still saw
the bird's back.
Suddenly, the hawk swooped
down and carried off the squirrel.
The little rodent didn't notice the
bird's head turning toward him while
it's body remained stationary.
The moral of the story is--you
never no when a situation may
take a turn for the worse.

You may have guessed that the prompt was to write a fable.
