Don't Kick Too Hard

Jingo is a funny baby elephant living in a zoo. He thinks very smart of himself and ahead of others in whatever he is doing. But he enjoys the company of kids. Kids who visits the zoo can go near him and talk to him. When children sing, he waves his trunk and shake his body dancing.

What makes him angry is when there are no visitors on holidays. He always wants to see people moving around. He loves eating bananas. Zoo workers feed him with a lot of bananas. 

One day Jingo was roaming freely in the zoo and found a football that was left by some kids. He wanted to play with it and started kicking the ball. Each time he kicked the ball, the ball cried with pain.

Don’t kick me that hard, it’s painful. The football pleaded.

But Jingo was not in a mood to listen to him. He kicked it even harder.
That kick took the ball out of sight. Jingo searched for the ball everywhere, but couldn’t find it. If I had listened to the ball I could have played longer, he regretted. He never saw the ball again. Remember: If you get an opportunity, use it carefully or you’ll lose it.
