Walking The Frog - Poem by Alan Draper

I have a pet frog
We go frog walking every day at 6pm
He is fine until he sees another frog
He sniffs & then tries to jump
I pull him away

Last week we had a problem
My frog stopped to do his business
A passer bye said stop your frog fouling
I cleared up after him but it left a slimy mark
The other man slipped on it

My frog likes water
Especially ponds
He likes jumping on lilies
The local gardener is mad
Control your frog he shouts

Well now Im in trouble
Despite the sign
Beware of the FROG
He bit a policeman
A fine guard frog

My frog is now banned
From walks anywhere
Poor froggy is in a cell
Eating flies & drinking water
Its a frogs life

    Maybe it's me but I sense a gentle polemic in this? Prejudice is a problem, no? (Report) Reply

    I think they should ban people eating frogs legs as the price of wheelchairs will go up; o))) In any case frogs need legs. Ruth (Report) Reply
