    A MOUSE TRAP STORY.. . . . AND IT IS ANIMATED WITH A MORAL AT THE END.

    A mouse looked through the crack
    in the wall to see the farmer and
    his wife open a package.

    What food might this contain?"
    The mouse wondered - - -
    he was devastated to discover it
    was a mousetrap.

    Retreating to the farmyard,
    the mouse proclaimed the warning :
    There is a mousetrap in the house!
    There is a mousetrap in the house!"

    The chicken clucked and scratched,
    raised her head and said,
    "Mr.Mouse, I can tell this is a grave concern
    to you, but it is of no consequence
    to me. I cannot be bothered by it."
    The mouse turned to
    the pig and told him,
    "There is a mousetrap in the house!
    There is a mousetrap in the house!"

    The pig sympathized, but said, I am
    so very sorry, Mr.Mouse, but there
    is nothing I can do about it but pray.

    Be assured you are in my prayers."
    The mouse turned to
    the cow and said
    "There is a mousetrap in the house!
    There is a mousetrap in the house!"

    The cow said, "Wow, Mr. Mouse.
    I'm sorry for you, but it's no skin
    off my nose."
    So, the mouse returned to the
    house, head down and dejected,
    to face the farmer's mousetrap . . .
    alone.

    That very night a sound was heard throughout
    the house -- like the sound of a mousetrap catching
    its prey.

    The farmer's wife rushed to see
    what was caught. In the darkness,
    she did not see it was a venomous
    snake whose tail the trap had caught.

    The snake bit the farmer's wife.
    The farmer rushed her to the hospital,
    and she returned home with a fever.
    Everyone knows you treat a fever
    with fresh chicken soup, so the
    farmer took his hatchet to the
    farmyard for the soup's main

    ingredient.
    But his wife's sickness continued,
    so friends and neighbors came to
    sit with her around the clock.
    To feed them, the farmer
    butchered the pig.
    The farmer's wife did not get well;
    she died.
    So many people came for her funeral,
    the farmer had the cow slaughtered to
    provide enough meat for all of them.
    The mouse looked upon it all from
    his crack in the wall with great sadness.
    So, the next time you hear someone
    is facing a problem and think it
    doesn't concern you,
    remember ----
    when one of us is threatened,
    we are all at risk.
    We are all involved in this journey called life.
    We must keep an eye out
    for one another and make an extra
    effort to encourage one another.
