Limerick-The Snake And The Frog - Poem by Loke Kok yee

This snake was eyeing a frog for his lunch
They struck at each other with a crunch
It was a stand off
A solution was far off
For both of them was unable to munch

    nice one! how many times did the two have to pose for the camera before they got it right? ?

    love the frog's 'hand' on the snake's 'neck'. the poem ain't too shabby either. but i've come up with a solution.

    I Had A Hunch

    While walking in a field one day,
    I came upon a horrid display....
    of a reptile-vs-amphibian struggle.
    Each one, with the other, did juggle.

    The snake's jaws had grabbed the frog tight,
    but at the same instant the frog did bite...
    the snake.
    Their jaws held each other in a silly embrace,
    so much that I thought they'd both “lose face”.

    Being a big black bear, I was not only amused,
    but also my big black-bear-brain was transfused ** …
    with a vision of a quick meal. Yes, I had a hunch ….
    that these two poor critters would make me a fine lunch.


    ** I beg for poetic license, readers!
