The Serpent and the Wolves

In a dark cave to where no one ventured, the crafty serpent gathered the wolves and hissed unto them, "Gather together unto yourselves and attack the sheep which reside in small enclaves in your territory. Kill them, maul them, scatter them and strike fear into them throughout the entire region and feed yourselves with their flesh.”
The Alpha wolf responded, "Why shall we do this, will we not bring the wrath of the Eagle?" The serpent ever so cunning and subtle replied in a low hiss, “For we shall be likened unto them as a shepherd, filling them with hope and direction to gather them unto ourselves to look to us and our staff. With wonderment and awe shall they come to fight for us and be our fodder. As for the Eagle, we are in its nest and know all of her, for she is bewildered and confused feeding our race rather than her own. Nevertheless, when we are through, the sheep she watches over, even those shall she cast their own lambs unto you as payment to do as you please.” The wolf with a grin said, “O’ masterful serpent that is why you reside in the dark recesses to where the light cannot expose you and hide in the places that they cannot see, but they do not want to see for fear of you. That is why you rule with cunning genius and with such subtlety. We shall make it so for you and we shall feed.”
