The Frogs' Complaint Against the Sun

ONCE UPON A TIME, when the Sun announced his intention to take a wife, the Frogs lifted up their voices in clamor to the sky. Jupiter, disturbed by the noise of their croaking, inquired the cause of their complaint. One of them said, "The Sun, now while he is single, parches up the marsh, and compels us to die miserably in our arid homes. What will be our future condition if he should beget other suns?"

"Perhaps you should have thought of that before I created you," replied Jupiter. "But then how could you?" he mused. "Alright," he decided, "I'll destroy the sun." And in immediately doing so, he doomed all life on the planet.
