Dear Frog Poem by Binayakumar Mohanty

Dear Frog

Rating: 5.0


How dare you
approach me,
Dear frog!
Me, the anatomist cruel
know no love,
no compassion.

Dear cold blooded creature
the tender heart,
the feeble mind and
sluggish feet
need warmth
need amplexus
dare not approach me
my territory
the frigid trap of death,
Me, the anatomist there
to anesthetize you
for reason not known
none to blame, none
to excuse.

Me, the anatomist paid for
to feed my gaster
and quench my thirst
How dare you approach me!

With forceps in one hand
and scissors in other
unable to feel
the spikes in your nerve

Me, the anatomist
know not me
know not you
with the sharp scalpel
waiting to split open
the skull.

How dare you
approach me!
Me, the anatomist, cruel
Know no love, no compassion.

I don't know why you wrote this poem, because the English is hard to read. It also shows that you must have been a Frog in your previous life, or you will be a Frog when you are reincarnated. The whole poem is slimy and can only be reviewed by other frogs. I don't blame you. When I read the comments on your poem, I get the feeling that all these flatterers are nothing but TOADS. You are better off being a Lab Assistant.

Wen will idiots like you stop coming to this site? Have you read twinkle twinkle little star? ? What do you know about poetry? You don't know how to respect others? Did your mum not teach you about respecting elderly people? Stop harassing poets and go with a broom somewhere to a mall or a school and start cleaning.

Intriguing poem. Interesting and deep reflection by the anatomist. I love the honesty and the almost-remorse shining through the verses. Excellent write

Have all the ponds in the state dried up for the mentor of dear frogs, Sir? Have you stopped coming here? Silence over three weeks overruled.
