The fable of the horses and S’poreans

One fine day, a herd of horses escaped their stable in Pasir Ris and galloped away.

With their new found freedom, they wandered one street down the road to a nearby cross junction and started grazing on grass.

Within a few minutes, a group of Singaporeans who were passing by stopped and gawked at the horses.

A few in the group whipped out their camera phones and started taking pictures, intrigued by the scene before them, as it is not every day horses appear by the road grazing.

The horses continued to graze on the grass, oblivious, or else, not trying very hard to ignore the commotion.

It was not long before one Singaporean, unable to hold it in anymore, raised his voice to address the horses.

Speaking what was clearly on the minds of all the other Singaporeans who were present, he said:

“Oh my god! Why are you all here? There are so many other places you can go, so many sights to explore. You have the means and the mobility to go anywhere you want. You can live your dream! The world is your oyster! You are free! Be not afraid! Why don’t you go elsewhere? It is so foolish to stay here and focus all your attention on this small area, thinking you can have your fill!”

Without breaking a sweat and nary batting an eyelid, one of the horses, who was clearly the leader, coolly raised its head and with a mouthful of grass in its mouth, said:

“Oh my god! Why are you all here? There are so many other places you can go, so many sights to explore. You have the means and the mobility to go anywhere you want. You can live your dream! The world is your oyster! You are free! Be not afraid! Why don’t you go elsewhere? It is so foolish to stay here and focus all your attention on this small area, thinking you can have your fill!”

With that, the Singaporeans and the horses looked at each other and appreciated each others’ lot in life.

The End.
