The Toad - Poem by Donald Yates

Once there was a toad
hopping down the road
Bent by the weight
of his heavy load.

He came upon a mouse
Setting on a stick
Said the mouse to the toad
'you want to see a trick'?

'No' said the toad
'I don't have time
said the mouse to the toad,
'not even for a dime'?
'for a dime, ' said the toad
'perhaps I'll stop a bit'
and by the road
he sat his heavy load.
said the mouse, 'come set'
the mouse jumped down
and ran around
he scoped up the load
off he ran like a light
down the dusty road
said the toad to himself,
'what is this I see'?
'this mouse is really smart
I think the trick is on me'

'1970'
