If frog and toad were

running mates

I think they would

get lots of votes.

A few flies might

not vote-but that’s

to be expected.

Leading the pollywogs

out of the muck

recycling tails

and giving jumping

lessons for free.

Even when they

croak, they

live to croak

another day.

A little water

in one place

and they’re set

for life.

They’re truly


don’t need a

party, running,

or hopping, as

it were, on their

own merits.
