The Monkey and The Wedge Page1

A carpenter was splitting a log of wood in a forest. It was noon. He drove a wedge in the slit. He went away for his food. At that time a troop of monkeys came. They jumped from one tree to another. One of them saw the log of wood and the wedge. He became curious. He came down. He sat on the log. He used all his strength to pull the wedge out. Lo! The wedge came out suddenly. The monkey’s tail was caught in the cleft.The pain was very great. The monkey died.

Meanings :

Wedge - Small piece of wood kept in the opening

Curious - Wanting to know.

Slit - Opening.

Cleft - Opening.
