Frog Poo

Frog Poo

A Poem by Fran Marie

One day while walking I saw a toad

sitting on a log in the middle of the road

with eyes popped out big and wide

and  cheeks puffed up with froggie pride

yes this frog was in happy mode


As I moved closer he hopped away to hide

that's when I saw a pile, so I stepped aside

there lay froggie poo, a great big mess

the reason for his pride, I guess

and toadish grin so wide


Kissing him? no! that would be a cruel test

how could there be a prince hidden in that mess?

so I think I'll pass on kissing toads

that greet you in the middle of roads

so full of frog poo and all the rest!

OMG this is so funny! Great allegory. Nice twist on the Frog Prince theme! I also love the fact that toad was so happy and full of pride after he made a great big mess (which he walked away from). He seems to represent the stereotypical "man to avoid": not very attractive, messes things up, refuses to accept responsibility for his actions. Also, what does the poo represent? An emotional mess? Him making a mess of his life? Someone else's life? Sh---ing on someone? The possibilities are endless. : )

Just a small nit-picky point though: frogs and toads are not the same thing.

Great poem!

Wow, Fran Marie, you are a very popular person. 1644 views is a lot, even if it has been posted for 9yrs. I liked the picture, presentation is something that a lot of authors forget. Otherwise I don't think you need any critiques for something this old, but thank you for entering in the competition (So You Think You Can Funny)!

Thanks Gus, so vey much for the review on my poetry..i enjoyed participating in your contest
I must admit, I find it odd
To see AABBA,
But nonetheless, this little piece
Stood out among the fray.

For one critique, I’d have to say
Some lines seem a bit cramped,
But I like the thought you put into
This frog prince tale, revamped!

So here you go, a prize review
Of an ABCB mold,
Keep up the words, I’ll wait to hear
Of future tales to be “toad” :D

Very amusing Fran Marie... My take is if you don't overlook the bad you never find the good the Prince was still within the Frog Warts and all!

Hah! I reallly like the big smiling picture of the toad! It made me think of a little kid that kicks you in the shin, then just stands there and laughs at you because you wont hit him back: you know better. Overall great story and poem!
