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!”
