Staring at the distant horizon, His Majesty Ucalypton X, the king of Ucalypta, appeared helpless. His only son was unwell.
“Your majesty!” pronounced the royal physician, “procure me eucalyptus leaves.”
The King had despatched the royal mule train under leadership of his trusted general.
“You returned alone?” an anxious king met his emissary at the palace gate, “where are the eucalyptus leaves?”
“Forgive me, your majesty, I have failed,” pleaded the general, “koala bears have feasted on eucalyptus leaves during mating season.”
“No Koala to be seen in the kingdom of Ucalypta,” pronounced the royal edict, “koala for a prince.”
