The Little Bird
Colonel’s Corner – USMC Leadership
A little bird delayed flying south for the winter.
He realized that his friends had already flown & set out to follow them.
But he’d waited too long and the cold winds & ice caught up with him.
As he tried to keep flying, his wings become frosted and he grew weak.
He fell out of the sky & landed in a farmer’s barnyard.
A cow walked over and dropped a huge turd on him.
Surrounded in warm manure, he defrosted and happily began to sing.
A cat heard the singing, dug him out, and ate him.
So what is the moral of the story?
Not everyone who craps on you is your enemy.
And not everyone who digs you out of crap is your friend.
