This doesn't end well
Once there was a crow who was dying of thirst.
It found a water jug, partially filled with water.
It suck its beak in to the jug.
No luck. The crow couldn’t reach the water.

This went well initially.
The crow gave up.
I want this to be easier called the crow.
The crow ignored the pebbles.
The crow ignored what it knew would work.
The crow worked extremely hard at finding ways to make getting the water easier.
It found a divining rod.
It created cups to catch the dew.
It even started a go fund me campaign.
None of it worked.
Things didn’t getting easier.
The crow died of thirst.
