Boothby: The Frogs and the Sun

On marriage of a knave of state,
Esop this fable did relate:
"Report had thro' the marshes spread,
That Sol was on the point to wed;
The croaking tribe made such a clatter,
That Jove inquir'd what was the matter.
"One Sun," a frighted Frog replies,
"Consumes us, when our lake he dries:
Then what will be our wretched fate,
Should this new couple propagate!"
