The Farmer and the Snake By Aesop’s Fables

Moral: The greatest kindness will not bind the ungrateful.

The Snake was quickly revived by the warmth, and resuming its natural instincts, bit its benefactor, inflicting on him a mortal wound. “Oh,” cried the Farmer with his last breath, “I am rightly served for pitying a scoundrel.”
