The King And The Foolish Monkey - Short Moral Stories in English

A king asked his pet monkey who sat beside him, "Could you please fan me as I am feeling very hot?" Suddenly, a fly came and sat on the King's chest. 

The monkey drove the fly away with the fan, but the fly kept coming back, again and again. 

It sat on the King's face, and then on his nose. Irritated and angry, the monkey wanted to kill the fly. So, when it next sat on the King's nose, the monkey hit it with a sword. 

The fly flew away, but the sword fell on the King's nose, leaving the King without a nose! 

Moral : It is better to have a wise friend than a foolish one who can cause trouble for you.
