        A Farmer walked through his field one cold winter morning. On the ground lay a Snake, stiff and frozen with the cold. The Farmer knew how deadly the Snake could be, and yet he picked it up and put it in his bosom to warm it back to life. The Snake soon revived, and when it had enough strength, bit the man who had been so kind to it. The farmer was sure he’d become rich, and the poor god started packing his things. The rich god would replace him shortly. That night, as the poor god headed for the door, the family cried, ‘Don’t go!’ But the poor god replied, ‘I must, otherwise the rich god can’t come in.’.
