The Frog Is Still Here - Poem by Alan Draper

Jacques the chef ordered it
The livestock removed bit by bit
My pond has been drained
Nothing now remains
He wanted frogs legs for his menu
No green creatures are now in situe
Most of my pals limbs have been eaten
But I've escaped - unbeaten
Give me time to recouperate
I might even find a new mate
I'll be back
Just don't tell Jacques!

    Ahh little legless frogs.....


    Maids pass Lilly pad
    Native Essex frog winks while
    long tongue licks warm beer.

    More Frogs

    darting tongue thrusts out
    old frog dies on lily pad
    maidens weeps green tears
