The Frogs Went To War (a poem for children)

There’s fighting in the duck pond,
the frogs have gone to war!
They’re punching toads and kicking newts,
they’re out to settle an old score.

“These lilly pads are ours! ”
Screams a gigantic froggy brute.
Then he hops into the reed bed,
then starts beating up a newt.

“Stop this, it is madness! ”
Shout the old grey geese.
But the frogs just ignore them,
they’re waging war, not peace.

They’re hopping past the bulrush,
they have just slapped mother swan.
Their battle cry is “Ribbit! ”
And still they’re marching on!

“Enough! ” Shouts the heron,
“This really has to stop! ”
He bares his beak, his frog eating beak,
then not one frog dares hop.

The heron has them fleeing,
the frogs hop off in retreat.
They’re apologising frantically,
knowing they’re what heron likes to eat!
