Once upon a time there was a tree that had lost all of itís limbs in a war. Because this tree could not offer shelter from the elements birds would not build their nests on him and because the tree could not offer shade children would not play around him Ė so the tree was very sad.
One day a small boy that had been pulling a large cart of turnips up a hill stopped to rest beside the sad tree and after a few moments he started telling tree about his hardships. He told the sad tree that he used to have a donkey to pull the cart of turnips to market
but his father had lost it in a poker game and because his father was a bit of a lush he didnít think he would be getting another donkey any time soon.
Then the small boy continued to pull the cart of turnips to town and the sad tree wondered if it was better to be a tree without limbs or a boy without an ass!
