The Frogs Who Wished for a King

The Frogs Who Wished for a King
Aesop's Fables - The Frogs Who Wished for a King

There once was a pond in the forest where a group of frogs resided. Although the frogs were satisfied and cheerful, they occasionally wished they had a king in charge of them.

The frogs made the decision one day to pray to the gods for a ruler. Finally, after much prayer, their wish came true.

The frogs were ecstatic and threw a lavish feast to honor their new monarch. However, as time passed, the frogs came to the conclusion that their monarch was not all they had hoped for.

He was a spoiled brat who only cared about his own pleasure and comfort. The frogs were sad and regretted their decision to want a monarch.

The frogs ultimately made the decision to petition the gods to remove their monarch. The frogs got their desire from the gods, and they were once more allowed to rule themselves.

Be careful what you wish for since you might not like what you get, is the story's moral.
