The Frog And The Crow Poem by Cowboy Ron Williams

The Frog And The Crow

Rating: 4.7

The frog sat by the peaceful pond
and marveled at the frilly frond
but said nothing.

That silly frog just didn't know -
approaching was a sneaky crow
that was hungry.

The crow swooped down and grabbed his head -
oh, fateful moment of pure dread
for the frog!

It happened on a cloudy day.
The frog had nothing much to say;
he just croaked.

Inspired by Dare to Say by Gajanan Mishra. Thanks, Gajanan!

Not even Aesop's fables, would have been this sad! However, very clever play on words, ' he just croked'

Excellent play on words, since 'croaked' has more than one meaning!

Though Kim alluded to 'play on words', he did not say 'croaked' can mean both 'died' and 'made a frog sound' (like 'bow wow' for a dog. ;) bri

FINALLY PH allows me to comment. I love this; it's almost as good as, but shorter than, my poem......

Not to be as as naive as a frog, as there are clever crows who would not give you a chance!
