A View From The Log

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

Have fun,

Jake.

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.

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