A monologue from the play by Eugene Ionesco
The Snake and Fox Story
I’ll tell you one: “The Snake and the Fox.” Once upon a time, a snake came up to a fox and said:
“It seems to me that I know you!” The fox replied to him: “Me too.” “Then,” said the snake,“give me some money.”
“A fox doesn’t give money,” replied the tricky animal, who, in order to escape, jumped down into a deep ravine full of strawberries and chicken honey.
But the snake was there waiting for him with a Mephistophelean laugh.The fox pulled out his knife, shouting:
“I’m going to teach you how to live!” Then he took flight, turning his back. But he had no luck. The snake was quicker.
With a well-chosen blow of his fist, he struck the fox in the middle of his forehead, which broke into a thousand pieces, while he cried:
“No! No! Four times no! I’m not your daughter.”
