BETTER A FROG THEN A FOOL

The frog, he sits and waits
And ponders on his day
The moon
The fly
His love, little one eye.

The frog adores the moonlight
On pond his love reflecting,
A fool
Knows not of connecting
He prefers a chase of might.

Better a frog
Who, perceives beauty in life
And for one love its love to strive,
Then a fool blind to vision
Chooses lovers for a fashion.

Of frog or fool…
In life I’ll choose to be a frog,
In love with one and one true love
Pray tell,
To you I say and learn it well…

…I’ll never be a prince in a castle
Although, a princess I oft do kiss,
I’ll love but only one love
For many is misguided bliss,
Take heed my words of wisdom
They are… notably sound,
Better a frog in life
Then a fool in an empty pond.

The frog, he sits and waits
He ponders on his life
The moon
The flies
And his love, little sweet eyes.


U K Hero

A castle not make’Th the prince, Nor a pond an ugly frog.

( And please, no ribbit jokes )
