A snake chased by hunters asked a farmer to save its life. To hide it from its pursuers, crawl into his belly. But when the danger had passed and the farmer asked the snake to come out, the snake refused. It was warm and safe inside.

On his way home, the man saw a heron and went up to him and whispered what had happend. The heron told him to squat and strain to eject the snake. When the snake snuck its head out, the heron caught it, pulled it out and killed it.

The farmer was worried that the snake poison might still be inside him, and the heron told him the cure for snake poison was to cook and eat six white fowl. "you"re a white fowl, "said the farmer. "you will do for a start." he grabbed the heron, put it in a bag, and carried it home. Where he hung it up while he told his wife what had happend. "i"m surprised at you. "said the wife. "the bird does you a kindness, rides you of the evil in your belly. Saves your life infact. Yet you catch it and talk of killing it." she immediately released the heron and it flew away. But on its way, it gouged out her eyes.

Moral: when you see water flowing uphill, it means someone is repaying a kindness.
