Frog

A frog came into my yard one day.
He croaked loudly,
In the most annoying way.
He hid.
I could not find him.
But still a racket he did make!

My neighbor called the Cops.
On ME!
A Law-abiding Citizen!
“Why does she allow that animal to croak?
Where does that frog go?
And furthermore, where does he hop?”

I have been witness to many strange things in my life,
But believe you me,
This is the strangest situation I have ever seen!
Reporting a croaking frog to the local Police!

Boy, I can’t get any peace!
All right! You pesky frog!
I’m giving you an order!
That nerve-grating noise
Must desist and cease!

I have threatened you repeatedly…
You had better stop that croaking,
Right this very minute!
Before you Croak for good!

Strange As It Seems

Strange as it seems,
I know these very words.
Although I’ve never heard them uttered.

Strange as it seems,
I believe these very truths.
Although I’ve never heard them said.

My cells, my body, my brain, my mind,
Reverberate my very soul.
This information that you gave me,
I knew since I was old.

A review course,
Which is just that,
Flew fast across my brain.
And now I’ve got those words picked out,
And I have seen them once again.

I’d begun those things years ago,
So I’m just about halfway there.
I know I’m staying younger,
Though the clock ticks off the years.

I’ll stick around much longer
Than was previously thought.
I’ll keep myself in real great shape
And prove what I’ve been taught.

I needed a little Wisdom
To help my youth along.
That’s why, I guess, I stumbled,
And lost my happy song.

But here I am, much younger,
Much wiser, than before.
The Centuries will roll right by.
Let’s see what we’ll have in store!

Strange

I saw a picture of the earth today,
Spinning and traveling at a pretty good clip.
While it goes off into the where ever,
Doing its best to shake us all off.

As I stand here, feet upon the ground,
Head somewhere in the lateral area
Of the atmosphere,
I think of you, my friend,
So far away in Argentina.

Standing just about on your head.
Never falling off.
Never holding on.
Speaking Spanish like crazy,
Watching the water go down the drain…
Backward.
