The Hawk, the Kite, and the Pigeons (fable)
ATHE PIGEONS, terrified by the appearance of a Kite, called upon the Hawk to defend them.
He at once consented.
When they had admitted him into the cote, they found that he made more havoc and slew a larger number of them in one day than the Kite could pounce upon in a whole year.
Avoid a remedy that is worse than the disease.
