A FROG IN THE BATHROOM
I saw a frog in the bathroom last night
It seemed to be staring right at me in fright
big toilet roll eyes on a porcelain face
just stared up at me with a look of disgrace
did not say a word, but he sat there and frowned
as though disapproving, did not make a sound.
I pressed on his nose as he stared with distrust,
and water gushed out as the toilet bowl flushed.
I wonder if I’ll ever see him again?
I wonder if next time he might bring a friend?
