Achok and Lerro Collect Honey
Narrated by Chame Kwer
After finding a hollow tree, Achok said, “Cousin, when collecting wild honey, you must be tied to the tree to be stung. Unless one is tied, we can’t collect the honey.”
So he tied him to the tree and ran away, and Lerro was badly stung and cried and cried and no one helped him. At last a stranger came and untied him, and Lerro fell down and out of the tree.
When he fell, he went home and found Achok, and said angrily, “Did you collect the honey? Is it true that unless someone’s tied to the tree the honey can’t be collected? Why did you say that? Why didn’t you go and collect it?”
Achok refused to go and collect it.
