It’s Day 6 of the A to Z Poetry Challenge hosted by Rena Traxel. F is for free verse and/or for fractured tale. Free verse scares the bejeebies out of me. I’d much rather rhyme. But I threw in a little free verse.
Hop! Plop! But Know When to Stop!
Frog went for a hop
Ran right into a house.
Oh well, hop
Right onto the kitchen table.
Oh my! Fresh fly pie!
Gee! How lucky can one frog be?
Ew! Too fresh! (That bugs me.)
Ew! Too old! (I’d probably croak.)
Yum! Just right! (I’m toadally lucky!)
Right back outside.
“Time’s fun when you’re havin’ flies!”
But not when the bears come home!
**And many thanks to Kermit the Frog for his famous words: “Time’s fun when you’re havin’ flies!”
