fable! (Or could be called my feeble, fumbling, futile, fusty, fuzzy attempt at fable)
Spider watched Ant carry his heavy load along the window ledge.
"Come and rest your heavy load in my web," The cunning spider said.
The cautious ant who had no time for the spider's games replied, "No thank you Spider. I can haul ten times this weight without getting tired. But I would ask you to show me how you spin such a grand web as this."
The spider who loved to brag, began to weave through his web, becoming tangled in his own deceit.
He turned to Ant and said, "This is my fault. I tried my devilish deception to trap you, for I am hungry, but it is you who tricked me."
