No Good Deed Goes Unpunished African Folklore Story

The African folktale story, Kodo and the Snake teaches us that no good deed goes unpunished. Helpful deeds are often unappreciated.

African Folklore Story

Kodo and the Snake, No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

Kodo was walking by himself, and saw a Snake lying under a large stone. The Snake implored his help; but when she had become free, she said, "Now I shall kill you."

Kodo answered, "That is not right. Let us first go to the Hare."

When the Hare had heard the affair, he said, "It is right."

"No," said Kodo, "let us ask the Hyena."

The Hyena declared the same, saying, "It is right."

"Now let us at last ask the Jackal," said Kodo in his despair.

The Jackal answered very slowly and considerately, doubting the whole affair, and demanding to see first the place, and whether Kodo was able to lift the stone.

The Snake lay down, and Kodo, to prove the truth of his account, put the stone again over her.

When she was pinned under the stone once more, the Jackal said to Kodo, "Now let her stay there."
