Ode To The Frog Whom I Dislodged Unceremoniously By Accident From The Outdoor Light Fixture With The Garden Hose Yesterday While Washing The Deck In The Cool Of The Evening And Nursing A Large Aberlour

Wee little froggie who camps in my lamp
I am so very sorry for making you damp
The jet of water was positioned to wash away crud
Not bring you to Earth with a squeak and a thud

Had I known where you rested, I'd have tread more lightly
But didn't the house gleam and glow spotless and brightly?
We each have to give in our own little ways
To ensure the Good Service in these halcyon days

Much like Rabbie Burns' to his Mouse, I invaded your space
And indeed, I am sorry, but you should have seen your face!
Bug-eyed and beautiful, you croaked loud with surprise
And I am so very sorry I scared away all your flies

The End

Bullshit So Far

My first impulse is to tell you not to give up your day job then I remembered hell, he don't work no how.

But, what the hell, copyright it for posterity. Poets don't get famous until they are dead anyway and your widow might be able to buy a gallon of gasoline with the royalty money

Aw don't listen to the critics. They obviously don't know that April is poetry month -- really. It's a great poem.
