THE STORY OF THE WISE KING
"there was this king, and he ruled over his kingdom. right in the middle of the kingdom there was a well. that's where everybody drank. one night, this witch came along and she poisoned the well. and the next day, everybody drank from it except the king. and they all went crazy. they got together in the street and they said 'we got to get rid of the king, cause the king is mad'. and then that night, he went down and he drank from the well. and the next day all the people rejoiced because their king had regained his reason."
