The Falling Snake

An eagle had captured a snake for supper. But as the eagle ascended toward her aerie, the snake, now far above the canyon floor that was its home, managed to wrestle free.

As the snake plummeted back down to earth, he realized that his doom was now unavoidable.

“Well,” thought the snake, “I might as well enjoy the view. After all, it is quite rare for a snake like me to see the world from up here.”
