A View From The Log

     A little nonsense poem for you today, Tuesdays are a perfect nonsense day aren’t they?

Have fun,


An unlikely combination to be sure.

An unlikely combination to be sure.

A View From The Log

The frog on the log

in the middle of a bog

kept watch as the dog

sneaked up on a hog.


While up in the sky

the hawk, on the fly

had the frog, in his eye

just awaiting his try.


Meanwhile, back on the ground

the hog spun around

and charged at the hound

who ran back to the pound.


But, the hawk in the air

had no worry or care

it was a frog sitting there

not a gator, or bear.


He had thought with a grin

that he’d simply sweep in

and with a spiraling spin

to the log, the frog, he would pin.


Now the frog he did feel

the danger for real

so into the bog he did steal

leaving the hawk and the hog there to squeal.

    Who sat on the log
    That’s all I’ve got…….
