I walked upon a crooked path,

Along a winding road

Across the way I spied,

A very odd looking toad

He stared at me as I went by,

I’m sure I heard him grumble,

“These humans have no grace at all”,

As I begin to stumble

Surely, he had no way of knowing,

I would trip and fall

Loudly, he laughed, as he looked at me,

Imagine the nerve! What gall!

I righted myself, and bid him good day,

Again, I heard him croak

“These people”, he said rather gruffly,

“Are really quite the joke.”

How rude, I thought, as I walked on,

Just who does he think he is?

Croaking again, he snidely replied,

“It’s really none of your biz!”
