You pyonged “Aesop – The Monkeys and Their Mother”

Save Note No Thanks
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

THE MONKEY, it is said, has two young ones at each birth. The
Mother fondles one and nurtures it with the greatest affection
And care, but hates and neglects the other. It happened once
That the young one which was caressed and loved was smothered by
The too great affection of the Mother, while the despised one was
Nurtured and reared in spite of the neglect to which it was

The best intentions will not always ensure success.
