She, no bigger than an egg,
Envious, stretches, puffs up and labours
To match the animal in size,
Saying: \"Hey watch me sister;
Is this enough? tell me; am I there yet?
-No way! -How about now? -Not at all. - Is that it ?
You aren\'t even close.\" The puny, pretentious creature
Swelled up so much that she croaked.
The world is full of people who aren\'t too wise:
People with some money wish to build like royalty,
Every minor prince has ambassadors,
Every marquis wants servants.
