Behold green frog,
Upon dead log,
In morning's fog,
At edge of bog.

Here comes a fly,
Just passing by,
Frog does espy,
Pfffffft, bye bye fly.

Comes water snake,
Up from the lake,
Frog seen by snake,
Snake does partake.

Up in the sky,
A hawk flies by,
Snake, hawk does spy,
As dives from high.

Hawk flies with snake,
Above the lake,
Hawk drops its take,
A flying snake.

Snake drops green frog,
Above the bog,
Like falling log,
Comes flying frog.

Green frog drops fly,
Dog passes by,
Dog does espy,
Snake, frog and fly.

Dog sees hawk too,
In sky so blue,
A motley crew,
A flying zoo.

The dog turns tail,
And starts to wail,
Heads down the trail,
So ends my tale.

Mike--What are you doing up at such a late hour(or early) writing such humor--this is so cute--reminds me of, there was an old woman who swollowed a fly.  Thank you for the wonderful treat this morning!!!!

Mike~
Such delight in the telling.
I can just see this one popping out of you.
Muchly liked by this lady.
I smile.
