Leon the Frog


Leon Frog met Missy Toad
upon a lily pad.
Said Missy Toad to Leon Frog,
'Why DO you LOOK so sad? '


Poor Leon said, 'I'm frightened
and I have to hide somewhere.
I heard someone mumble 'frog's legs'
and I haven't a pair to spare! '


As if that wasn't bad enough,
in love, he'd no success...
why, the last girl frog
he kissed that week
became a princess with his kiss.


Then poor Leon took a fall
right into a barbed wire heap.
The wire took poor Leon's leg
and a wooden one replaced it, cheap.


Leon's back at home now,
fake leg strapped to his rump.
Listen closely, you will hear
Hop-THUMP, Hop-THUMP, Hop-THUMP.

It is a rare poet who can make a tasteful funny about a wooden leg...and better yet, on a frog. But, dear CJ, you can, which proves the immense talent you have.

Oh, no-o-o! She became a princess! If you're a frog, that's a disaster!
Made me chuckle. Thanks.
