A grasshopper was singing one summer day.
An ant walked by carrying food.
“Why don't you sing with me?” asked the grasshopper.
The ant said, “I am working so that I will have food in the winter.”
The grasshopper said, “I am too busy singing to work.”
When winter came, the grasshopper was hungry.
The grasshopper went to ask the ant for food.
The ant said, “If you had not been so busy singing, you would also have food to eat.”
