     The Swallow, the Serpent, and the Court Of Justice


There was a Swallow who was once returning from abroad and especially fond of dwelling with men, built herself a nest in the wall of a Court of Justice and there gave seven eggs and hatched seven young birds.

 A Serpent gliding past the nest from its hole in the wall ate up the young unfledged nestlings.

 The Swallow, finding her nest empty, lamented greatly and exclaimed: "How sad to me a stranger! that in this place where all others' rights are protected, I alone should suffer wrong."
