Frog Stereotypes


Frogs are green
like chlorophyll
their eyes bulge out at you
they can be mean
and further still
can fit inside a shoe.

They have a land
all to their own
it ain't a small one, no
so shake their hand
'cause they are prone
to see you as a foe.

They eat their legs
and also snails
and drink the Beaujolais
a frog who begs
is one who fails
be warned, that's all I say.

A stereotype
is something which
applies to definition
of all the hype
it's really Kitsch
and now I'm going fishing.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
