Default The Rat's Pile

A rat lived under a small brush heap. It was a humble pile of sticks and leaves that sheltered his nest from most of the rain and wind. One day he was awoken by the sound of branches falling on top of his pile. He cowered down until it stopped. That evening he emerged to find his pile much larger. "Ha! the humans who often try to kill me have given me a mansion, wait until the other rats hear of how my enemies have played into my hands." But his pride was short lived. The next morning the pile was set on fire and burned everything, including the rat's nest at the bottom. He barely escaped with his life, moaning over the loss of his beautiful pile mansion; but he learned:

Your enemies only build you up for your greater destruction.
