"You
See my meaning," said their father.

from Aesop – The Bundle of Sticks on Rap Genius

Meaning

The father reversed the test of union here. Usually a group of people all have to fight one thing they will never be able to defeat. After the loss all the people are supposed to unite and fight the enemy together which they will win. But here all the brothers will feel the loss of fighting against a group of enemies (the sticks) and then fight them one by one, which they will win. — Unity doesn’t just make you stronger, it works the other way around too.
