Happy first Birthday 'Jed'

Skeletons in a closet.

repost...I don't want to go there

Human Monsters!

Can anyone tell me which one is 'wrong'?

The refugee on my train.

Happy First Birthday

Freedom for the little lion cub 'Leo.'

The kidnapped Toad
By Kay P M- Devenish

There's an ugly old toad in the sugar-cane crop,

he poisons the lizards and snakes,

He is seen on the road

where we hear him explode

with the eerie commotion he makes.

The kangaroos hop so afraid they might stop

and be faced with the spit of the toad,

for more scary are none

than that wart covered one

who lives where the sugar-cane's sowed.

He came not from here,

but be kind to him dear,

for he never wanted to come,

he was forced in a sack

and can never get back,

nor ever forgive what we've done.

So he'll spit and he'll cuss

for he hates all of us

and his children grow billions in score.

and they eat all our frogs

and spit at our dogs

and will ruin us ever more.

You may say it was dumb,

 that we forced him to come,

we should never have gone down that road

and the worst one I fear,

is the one with me here

on my bed sits the monstrous toad!

He awoke me just now,

with his feet on my brow

it's a certianty... at ME ...he'll spit ,

for I tell not a lie ,

if he sees me I'll die ,

and in terror I'm trapped ...under... 'IT' !!
