The King and Queen of the Jungle:
Or alternatively, Why the King is angry so often
The king of the jungle is an angry and ferocious lion wherever he roams in the savannahs of the Serengeti. He is the king over all the other animals that dwell there.
The king spews his anger and takes the prey taken by other lions; instead of catching his own prey because he is so ferocious and none of the younger lions want to suffer the wrath and endure the anger of the king of the jungle.
After taking prey from another, the king of the jungle returns to his favorite lioness, known as the queen of the jungle. The king humbles himself before her in hopes of gaining favor from the gifts the king has presented to her. If the gift pleases the queen, she offers pleasures to her king.
After the queen has pleasured the king, she again snubs and scorns him forcing the king to once again return to the jungle. And this cycle is known as the natural law of the jungle. The king rules the jungle; while the queen rules the king.
So if you want to know why I am so grouchy around you, ask the Queen-because in my world she rules the universe. And she is not real happy with me today. So, I am ferocious.
There is a simple moral to this short story. To get love, give love. A wise king knows it is his job to make the queen happy, every day by loving his queen. Restated, if the queen is happy, the king will be happy.
Conversely . . . well that is pretty obvious. Grrrr.
