    Allegory: A narrative using symbolic names, usually a short, simple, commonly cliched lesson, it is a whole world of symbols.

    example of an allegory in a joke:

    A crow was sitting in a tree, doing nothing all day. A small rabbit saw the crow, and asked him, "Can I also sit like you and do nothing all day long?" The crow answered: "Sure, why not." So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the crow, and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

    Management Lesson:
    To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.

    Allegory is symbolism that carries a deeper meaning.
