A very long time ago there lived a king in his palace. He had a servant, a very helpful servant indeed. One day the king had a lot of work to do. There was a lot of mess to clean up. The king ordered his servant to tidy up the mess. When he had cleaned up the mess he was feeling very tired so left the job. The king was very sad about it. One day somewhere near his palace a poor man was living there. He asked if he could be his servant. The king agreed.
