Chicken Little

 

Once there was a little chicken.

The little chicken was scared.

He was little and panicky.

One day a nut fell from a tree.

He panicked! He said loudly:

CHEEP CHEEP!

The sky is falling! The sky is falling!

We will all die!

There was a little goat. The little goat was confused. “Little chicken, why the panic?” he said.

The little chicken panicked! “Why the panic? It’s a disaster!” he said to the goat, “Goat, the sky is falling.”

“Seriously?” said the goat.

“Yes, seriously. The sky is falling,” said the chicken.

“Oh no, I am little. I will die!” said the goat.

So the goat panicked. The goat and the little chick said loudly:

CHEEP CHEEP! MAA MAA!

The sky is falling! The sky is falling!

We will all die!

 Then there was a little rabbit.

The chicken and the goat panicked. The rabbit said, “Why the panic?”

The chicken and goat said, “Rabbit, the sky fell. It was terrible.”

“Seriously?” said the rabbit.

“Yes, seriously. The sky is falling,” said the little chick.

Rabbits are naturally panicky animals. So rabbit panicked. Rabbit said, “Oh no, I am little. I will die!”

The frog, the chicken, and rabbit said loudly:

CHEEP CHEEP! MAA MAA! — —

The sky is falling! The sky is falling!

We will all die!

Then there was an old owl.

The old owl was intelligent. He did not panic normally.

He saw that the chicken, the goat, and the rabbit were panicking. The owl said, “Why the panic?”

The animals said, “Owl, the sky is falling. It is terrible!”

“No, you are not serious. The sky is not falling. That is not possible,” said the old owl.

“Yes, seriously. The sky is falling,” said the little goat.

“Did you observe the sky falling? You, personally?” said the owl.

“No…” said the rabbit, embarrassed. He had panicked.

“Not me…” said the goat. “It was chicken.”

“Chicken, did you observe the sky falling?” said the owl.

“Yes… I observed the sky falling!” said the chicken.

“Here it is. Here is the sky,” said the chicken. The little chicken pointed to a nut. It was not the sky, just a nut.

The animals were embarrassed. “It is just a nut. It is a little nut,” said the rabbit and goat.
“A little nut…?” said the chicken. “Why panic over a nut? I am embarrassed.”

The little chicken did not panic anymore.
