The Tyrant Who Became a Just Ruler

In the olden times there was a king who was so cruel and unjust toward his subjects that he was
always called The Tyrant. So heartless was he that people used to pray night and day that might have
a new king.
One day, he called his people together and said to them, “My dear subjects, the day of my tyranny are
over. Henceforth, you shall live in peace and happiness, for I have decided to try my rule henceforth
justly and well.”
The king kept his words so well that soon he was known throughout the land as The Just King. By and
by of his favorites came to him said, “Your Majesty I beg you to tell me how it was that you had this
change of heart towards our people.”
And the King replied “As I was galloping through my forest one afternoon, I Caught sight of a hound
chasing o fox. The fox escaped into his hole, but not until he had been bitten by the dog so badly that
he would be lame for life. The hound, returning home, met a man who threw a stone at him, which
broke his leg. And the horse, starting to run, fell into a hole and broke his leg, Here I came to my
senses, and resolved to change my rule. ‘for surly,’ I said to myself; he who does evil will sooner or
later be overtaken by evil.”
