Polaris AB: The Fable Collection of Short Stories
The crows had begun to grow hungry and decided to visit the farmer's field filled with golden wheat.
The crow's helped themselves to the rich harvest that nature had provided them. But, the farmer had other ideas. To discourage them from eating his wheat, the farmer placed a scarecrow in the field. The scarecrow's job was to make sure that no crows went anywhere near the field. For a short while, the crows kept away from the field until they saw that the scarecrow paid them no attention, so it didn't take them long to ignore it's threatening posture and they soon began to feed on the grain.
Upon seeing them return to his crop, the annoyed farmer ran into the fields, shouting and hollering at the crows, driving them away. After doing this several times, the crows soon recognised that for all the noise and running about, the farmer was not threatening them in anyway, so they soon returned to feeding on the grain once again.
On seeing this, filled with anger, the farmer loaded up his shotgun and marched out into the field, repeatedly fired at the crows, killing a great number of them. The remaining birds at once left the fields and headed far away to another farm.
As they flew away, they cried to each other, "it is time for us to move away from here, for this farmer is no longer content with just trying to scare us, his actions clearly now show us what he will do, to stop us from all we do".
And the moral of the story is:
Ignoring the warning signs will always lead to greater actions being taken.
Push hard enough and the Warrior can be awoken within everyone.
