It's a Frog's Life Poem by Ken Welsh


Slimy green and small
A frog's life is no ball
A target for man's jest and joke
A frog will live -
and then he'll croak!

    Clever double entendre, Ken! One would believe that Ogden Nash was one of your influences. :) (Report) Reply

    This sounds like something I'd say to a child. There is so much joy in this poem although the frog will croak. (Report) Reply
