YOU WANT TO HEAR THIS?

The Hawk sent out it's young to catch a meal. It came back with a duckling. The mother Hawk

asked what was the mother Duck reaction? 'It didn't do anything, it just walked away'. Return it back, the mother Hawk said and find another meal. The young hawk came back with a chick. The mother Hawk asked the same question. 'Oh! The mother Hen was just flapping it's wings, running in circles and making such a racket!' The young Hawk replied. 'Then we can feast on this, the mother cannot do anything!'


This parable is usually used to describe a scenario where 2 people had a quarrel and words like;'I will deal with you! 'I will tell you what am made of!' Do you know who am I?' Then if one of them falls sick or have an accident, accusing fingers would be pointed at the other party who really had nothing to do with it.....it is like a toothless dog...all barks and no bites!


 Listen, it is not the people that talks too much you should be worried about, but the quiet ones, because you don't know what's in their head! Which brings me to the issue I really want to discuss; Some people go around talking about this or that, supporting or against one motion or the other all just to be heard, but when it comes down to the nitty-gritty, you would realize they are all airs and no substance! And when these people p.o.v is not accepted, they make such a racket but when ignored like the mother hen, they keep quiet after a while.


I know, many or some would not want to hear this, but let me chip in this also; We humans are hypocritical beings! We are quick to give our opinions on other people's predicament, but when similar thing happens to us, we play the sympathy card so that people would empathize with us. We try to rationalize the reasons behind our own actions and say it is different! And I ask; 'What is new under the sun people?Nah today fowl yansh dey back?

I actually get what you mean. This is why I try not to judge people and their choices although it can be hard.

New Dawn said...

Glad you do Toin....and yes, it is difficult. :)

Lol ofcourse humans are hypocritical....and definitely when it happens to someone personally, its always "Different" haha

New Dawn said...

My beautiful sistah, how your body? 'doh' :)................of course, it is! But we don't like to admit it!

This event happened in the compound I lived back home:

A neighbour asked his nephew to leave his house because he was becoming a pain in the neck....a couple made a comment that 'if it was his son nko?...the matter was later resolved.....fast forward months later, this 'good' couple sent a relative back to the village when they found out she was pregnant, his wife intentionally hid the info from her husband for many months, until she became very heavy for the man to notice it, she didn't give this gal any medication, not even folic acid or multivitamin capsules, because she disliked the gal..... .and I wondered if the couple asked themselves the same question; If it was their own daughter nko?.........this was the same woman who secretly took her own daughter for evacuation months back without her husband knowing!

I have always said that my own, your own and our own is different, but some always disagree with me....this is the reality of life.
