English gr. 9 assignment(write a fable on one of the topics) need ideas

I am good at nonfic writing, and bad at ideas for fictional stories. It has to have a moral. Just want some ideas.My instructions:

Create your own fable on one of the following topics. Make sure that your fable includes all the parts of the short story. A fable is a narration intended to enforce a useful truth. Fables have two important characteristics. First, they teach a moral or lesson. Second, the characters are most frequently animals. These animal characters often function as a satiric device to point out the follies of humankind.
