AESOP'S  FABLES               


095 - The Crow and Mercury




A Crow caught in a snare prayed to Apollo to release him, making a vow to offer some frankincense at his shrine. 

But when rescued from his danger, he forgot his promise. Shortly afterwards, again caught in a snare, he passed by Apollo and made the same promise to offer frankincense to Mercury. 

Mercury soon appeared and said to him, "O thou most base fellow? how can I believe thee, who hast disowned and wronged thy former patron?'


If by our will we do not fulfill our first promise, we will not have the opportunity to be believed for the second time.
