    The Thieves and the Cock

There were some thieves who went into a house and found nothing but a Cock, whom they stole, and got off as fast as they could.

Upon arriving at home they prepared to kill the Cock, who thus pleaded for his      life:

"Please spare me; I am very important and workable to men. I wake them up in the night to their work."

"That is the very reason why we must the more kill you," they replied; "for when you wake your neighbors, you entirely put an end to our business."

Moral: The safeguards of virtue are hateful to those with evil intentions.
