The Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs - Fiction (Aesop's Retold)

The snap-





The fiction-


All the hay, alfalfa and the dried grasses made for quite a comfortable spread, just warm enough. The smell of fresh dug earth wafted strong, its musky odors pulled up by the light drizzle drumming against the newly patched tin segments of the roof.  He spent the next few moments taking care of each and every single detail to the letter, of what he had learned about making her comfortable.

 “God help us all”

He sighed to himself. Of course, him more so than others; considering his recent venture. Quite an ambitious one, if his opinion might be allowed; Perhaps, tad greedy as others might put it but then the world was not made by people who are content with what they already have. Right??

May be his counterpart was not all wrong as they depict him, when he tore open the stomach of his goose, expecting to find the mother lode of the eggs, those golden eggs that it laid one by one each and every day. Foolish like him or not, being satisfied with whatever you have in life is not going to get you anywhere. How more pathetic an idea you can put forward? Bollocks. Complete bollocks. How can people believe and spread crap like that in fables?

“Simple minded fuckers, God help ‘em all”

He murmured to himself again as he slowly got up leaving his goose to her task; roosting alone, trying to breed a bunch of her ilk for him; a bunch of geese that lay golden eggs.



Author’s note-

Quite some while ago, I wrote short fictions that retold some famous Aesop’s fables that were taught in kinder garden. I have retained the spirit of the narrative and twisted it to suit a different moral scenario. Do let me know, what you guys think about them.
And also do check out the other famous Aesop's fables- retold likewise in the following links.

On a side note-
On 22-8-2012, I booked for an accidental warranty service with Dell around 11.30 am, (My friend dropped his laptop accidentally, damaging it's screen). I was visited by the service engineer on 23-8-2012 at around 12.15 am and had the laptop's screen changed immediately. The response was quite swift and the service was precise and friendly. Honestly I am not just satisfied but impressed. I wanted to share this info, so that it might help people who are looking to buy new laptops.

Different take, but if the goose lay only eggs in gold, how can it breed a bunch of her ilk?

@ jaish_vats --

Well, Golden eggs doesn't always mean completely solid gold. And, also, if the goose can lay it, hopefully, it should be able to roost it.

hmhm.... If the farmer is not going to try it out, we may never know whether it works... right??

May be, the farmer wants to explore how the original goose came into being!!

Interesting point made. Cheers. :)

I like this one .. Indeed being satisfied wont get us anywhere but we will be stuck there .. Its the will to attain something or do something different that will take us to the NEXT Step ..

I loved the idea , God willing soon the eggs will hatch and instead of one the farmer will have a few ..

@ Bikramjit --

Yes, God willing - the farmer has already done what he can and he has cast his dice. After all if greed helps human progression, then greed too has to be good. Right??
