"Coyote Tries to Eat the Sun"

Coyote knew that the people weren't following him so he thought of a way to gain the power of the sun. He laid out in the desert for days and got very hot. Each day while he got hotter he thought the sun was getting closer to him, so he raised up to bite at the sun and consume its power. After a time he got delirious and fell down, and although it was hard, Coyote admitted that he couldn't be all powerful and own the sun.
