A Rich farmer's son by accident trod upon a Serpent's tail, which turned and bit him so that he died. The father in a rage, vengefully got his axe, and pursuing the Serpent, cut off part of its tail. 
The serpent living with this pain thought of what to do to retaliate. Soon in revenge,the Serpent  began stinging several of the Farmer's cattle and caused him severe loss. 
Well, the Farmer thought it best to make it up with the Serpent, and brought bread and honey to the mouth of its lair, and said to it: "Let's forget and forgive; perhaps you were right to punish my son, and take vengeance on my cattle, but surely I was right in trying to revenge him; now that we are both satisfied why should not we be friends again?"

"No, no, i'm not interested,take away your gifts off my face " said the Serpent; "you can never forget the death of your son, likewise I will never forget the loss of my tail; think its better we stay at arms length".
 Injuries may be forgiven, but not forgotten
