1120 – Frognapped

And that’s when my brother got the nickname “tadpole”.

Why I Hate Frogs and Toads

I hate each tadpole, toad and frog
but not because they’re slimy
with warty, lumpy-bumpy skin
or live in ponds so grimy,
and not because of buggy eyes
or ’cause they croak and ribbit,
and not the awful etiquette
that all those beasts exhibit.
They body-snatched my brother Bill,
and though we missed him dearly,
the frogs and toads brought Billy back.
I hate them all sincerely.
