The Frogs Desiring a King
The Frogs were living as happy as could be in a marshy swampthat just suited them; they went splashing about caring for nobodyand nobody troubling with them. But some of them thought thatthis was not right, that they should have a king and a properconstitution, so they determined to send up a petition to Jove togive them what they wanted. "Mighty Jove," they cried, "send untous a king that will rule over us and keep us in order." Jovelaughed at their croaking, and threw down into the swamp a hugeLog, which came downrplashto the swamp. The Frogswere frightened out of their lives by the commotion made in theirmidst, and all rushed to the bank to look at the horrible monster;but after a time, seeing that it did not move, one or two of theboldest of them ventured out towards the Log, and even dared totouch it; still it did not move. Then the greatest hero of theFrogs jumped upon the Log and commenced dancing up and down uponit, thereupon all the Frogs came and did the same; and for sometime the Frogs went about their business every day without takingthe slightest notice of their new King Log lying in their midst.But this did not suit them, so they sent another petition to Jove,and said to him, "We want a real king; one that will really ruleover us." Now this made Jove angry, so he sent among them a bigStork that soon set to work gobbling them all up. Then the Frogsrepented when too late.MORAL: Better no rule than cruel rule.
