On that very occasion the old king of Cadu said to his wise men: ‘Now foretell me what will be hereafter.’
So the first sage, who happened to be the archbishop, said: ‘The future is in the hand of God, not to be known by man, my Lord.’
He was rewarded with a cathedral.
The second sage, who was the jester in disguise, sang a song, called Que sera.
He was rewarded with a nugget of gold.
The third sage finally only made a bow and presented his Lord with two pictures, portraying caducity, that he had been working on for five years.
He was rewarded with a dime.
