THE FROGS WHO WISHED FOR A KING

The Frogs were tired of governing themselves. They had so much

freedom that it had spoiled them, and they did nothing but sit

around croaking in a bored manner and wishing for a government

that could entertain them with the pomp and display of royalty,

and rule them in a way to make them know they were being ruled.

No milk and water government for them, they declared. So they

sent a petition to Jupiter asking for a king.


Jupiter saw what simple and foolish creatures they were, but to

keep them quiet and make them think they had a king he threw down

a huge log, which fell into the water with a great splash. The

Frogs hid themselves among the reeds and grasses, thinking the

new king to be some fearful giant. But they soon discovered how

tame and peaceable King Log was.


In a short time the younger

Frogs were using him for a diving platform, while the older Frogs

made him a meeting place, where they complained loudly to Jupiter

about the government.







To teach the Frogs a lesson the ruler of the gods now sent a

Crane to be king of Frogland. The Crane proved to be a very

different sort of king from old King Log.


He gobbled up the poor

Frogs right and left and they soon saw what fools they had been.

In mournful croaks they begged Jupiter to take away the cruel

tyrant before they should all be destroyed.



"How now!" cried Jupiter "Are you not yet content? You have what

you asked for and so you have only yourselves to blame for your

misfortunes."




- Moral of the Story -

Be sure you can better your condition before you seek to

change.
