Here’s a “circus story” (I miss the circus, by the way) on what is real. Then you and I can figure out what it means.

His instructions were to scratch and jump around so that the folks wouldn’t know that he was a fake. After a while, he got so good at it that he even started swinging around on the tree in the cage. Soon he got too carried away, until by accident he swung over the top of the cage and fell into the lions’ den.
The man (monkey) began to cry out, “Help! Help!”. The old lion lying in the corner looked at the monkey and whispered “shut up, you fool, or the crowd will know that we’re both fakes”.
