 ap·o·logue /ˈæpəˌlɔg, ˌlɑg/

From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 Ap·o·logue n.  A story or relation of fictitious events, intended to convey some moral truth; a moral fable.
 Note:An apologue differs from a parable in this;: the parable is drawn from events which take place among mankind, and therefore requires probability in the narrative; the apologue is founded on supposed actions of brutes or inanimate things, and therefore is not limited by strict rules of probability. Æsop's fables are good examples of apologues.
