Country Mouse v. City Mouse

Country Mouse v. City Mouse | Do you remember the fable, The City Mouse and The Country Mouse? The country mouse leaves the country to visit his cousin in the city and becomes enamored by the luxuries of city life but eventually he finds that they come at a dangerous price.
