Yertle the Turtle - Dr. Seuss


"I'm ruler," said Yertle, "of all that I see.
but I don't see
enough.
That's the trouble with me.
If I could sit high, how much greater I'd be!
What a king! I'd be ruler of all I could see!"

Yertle the Turtle, the king of the pond, is unsatisfied with the small stone that serves as his throne. He commands the other turtles to stack themselves beneath him so that he can see further and expand his kingdom. As the stack of turtles get's higher and higher, poor Mack, the turtle at the very bottom of the pile, is in great pain. Mack asks Yertle for a brief rest, but Yertle just tells him to be quiet. Finally fed up with Yertle's abuse, the plain little turtle named Mack does something to upset the balance of power and free all the turtles.
