Once upon a delusion
she flew in, a beauteous vision
crowned though he was
he's a frog and she buzzed,
so he ate her in the conclusion.

It's a love story between a frog prince and a butterfly.

Once upon a delusion,
the frog-king was caught in collusion.
'twas a trifle he claimed,
all others he blamed,
succeeding in breeding confusion.

Neat! I enjoy that kind of participation.

How apt! Barry has a peculiar fascination with the French.


Thanks, John! :)


There was a little tadpole
Who gazed upon a frog
“I’ll make myself like him someday,
I’ll be King of the Log!”

As his tail grew smaller
And legs they did emerge
He said, “My, look what I have done!”
His confidence did surge

Soon his tail had gone away
His legs grew big and strong
He hopped next to the elder king
And chirped his youthful song

“I’ve made myself a mighty frog
And you’ve grown weak and old
Step aside and I will wear
That regal crown of gold!”

He reveled in his glory
And when the moment passed
He hopped and in an instant
He was dinner for a bass

John Cox:

HEY Anon

Well done. Crafty with a message. Thanks for the contribution.
