Khmer Short Story:12- The Blackbird And The Monkey

There were two blackbirds, male and female who set up their nest on a tree. Mean whole it was raining; a homeless monkey who was stricken with cold came to stay under the blackbird’s tree. When the blackbirds saw him terribly shivering, one counseled him “Oh, Brother Monkey, you have two hands and two legs as a man does. Why don’t you build home for you dwelling?”
The monkey said “I have two hands and two legs as a man does. Thus I am a nestles animal. The truth is I cannot do it” The blackbird said again “You do not need knowledge to build your nest. You see the birds have only one beak and they can build the nest which they need for their protection from the cold and the rain. You had better think it over. Am I right or not? All the animals in the world have their own dwelling to protect their babies and their mates from suffering. If you cannot build a good nest, you just put branches one on another and you cover it with leaves for your own nest for a while. You do not depend on another dwelling or on a branch or on a tree. It is very difficult for you mate and your young ones. Monkey you have two hands and two legs, I think you can do it. Please do it, do not wait for your knowledge to help you.
All the animals have only strength will work in their own way. They never work like the human beings. You see even the worm, the locust and the termite which are very small, but they have their own habitations, and you, why can’t you do it?
Other animals have no more knowledge than you, but they are able to build habitations of their own.
You said that you cannot do it because you do not want to do it, and you are lazy animal”
When the monkey heard the blackbird criticize him, he became very angry, because he was ashamed before the blackbirds, and then he swung straight to the blackbird’s nest and dropped it down.

Hi fantastic website! Does running a blog like this take a great deal of work?
I have virtually no expertise in computer programming but I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
Anyway, should you have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners please
share. I know this is off topic but I just had to ask.
Thanks a lot!

Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries
that they plainly do not know about. You managed
to hit the nail upon the top and defined out
the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal.
Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The text in your post seem to be running off the screen
in Chrome. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to
let you know. The design and style look great though!
Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Cheers
