In a hidden place, three little animals gathered themselves secretly to treat political subjects. All of a sudden, they perceived that another animal was coming:
-Silence! I am hearing steps. -the mouse said.
-If some animal see us together here will suspect our plan! –the cockroach said.
But the termite observed who passed near and tranquilized them:
-It is the giraffe! She walks looking up. She won’t perceive our assembly!
