This fable represents human psychology, and numbered 325 in the Perry Index (as 325. The Lark and the Farmer). One of the lesser known of Aesop's fables, this fable illustrates the importance of work and doing things oneself, instead of depending on others. Besides, a good servant is spoiled by a careless master.

Self-help is the best help.
He that would be sure to have his business well done, must either do it himself, or see the doing of it.
A lark and her babies lived in a nest, that was inside a wheat field. The wheat crops had begun to ripen, and therefore the lark knew she had to move to another nest. One day, her young ones reported to her that they had overheard the farmer seeking the assistance of his neighbours to cut the crop. To this, the lark did not heed any urgency. Another day, her young ones reported to her that they had overheard the farmer seeking the assistance of his relatives to cut the crop. To this, also, the lark did not heed any urgency. But another day, when the lark heard that her young ones had overheard the farmer had decided to cut the crops himself, she knew he was determined - and quickly moved to a new nest.
