It gets food easily without any effort whereas I have to work hard throughout the day. Thinking this the monkey went to stay in the cage of the zoo that night.
He thoroughly enjoyed the rest and free food there. But soon he got tired of it all. Now he wanted his freedom back. So he ran away from there and went back to his master.
The monkey realized that although it takes hard work to make a living, it is even more difficult to sit idle.
