The Monkey as King | Aesop's Fables


Here is a dainty morsel I have found, sire.

At a gathering of all the animals the monkey danced and delighted them so much that they made him their king.


The fox, however, was very much disgusted at the promotion of the monkey. So having one day found a trap with a piece of meat in it, he took the monkey there and said to him, "Here is a dainty morsel I have found, sire; I did not take it myself, because I thought it ought to be reserved for you, our king. Will you be pleased to accept it?"


The monkey made at once for the meat and got caught in the trap. Then he bitterly reproached the fox for leading him into danger. But the fox only laughed and said, "O monkey, you call yourself king of the beasts and haven't more sense than to be taken in like that."
