Two beastly lions, Muna and Waka, living in an old jungle, are terribly hungry. As they prowl about, they encounter a sick monkey. The lioness kills the prey. She eats alone because her husband cannot bear the taste of a sick prey. The animals of the jungle grieve the assassination of the monkey. It was a good-natured animal, a worthy crony whose death must be commemorated, the animals decide. All potential preys come and give testimonies about the virtuous nature of the monkey. A famous spying tortoise sees the cruelty of the lions and grieves the overt vileness of jungle animals. The tortoise doubtless has a secret agenda for the jungles future. He laments the evil unleashed by two malignant humans, Massa Martin and Massa Chi. These two daily fight with the lions over ownership of the jungle, but by all reckoning, the lions have an edge over them on the battlefront.
The first-generation occupants of the jungle were peaceful and jovial cronies, specially blessed by the Messiah Earth Goddess. When the land became riddled with badness with the coming of new generations, the Messiah quit, promising to come back one day to restore peace and order. The present generation of the jungle is the fifth, universally believed be a nest of the agents of Satan.About the Author
