Read-It, Read-It, Read-It..... - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

Said the good-natured mouse
who was sharing a house
which was really a log
with a goose-shit-green frog:
You keep bringing me books
about farming and chooks
it is thoughtful of you
if only you knew
that I plum don't recall
what to do with them all.
Take this book, do I need it? '
Frog answered 'read-it'.

    That's cute, Herbert!
    I like 'goose-shit-green frog' a lot! I don't know if children's publishers would.: -)
    I'll have to look up 'chooks'.
    And I think German frogs say 'Read-it'. That makes sense.
    If I can find that Kermit, I'll have 'im for dinner. He's made American frogs 'ri-bet' in lockstep for 25 years!
