For my sister's birthday. I got her a large blue dyed frog from Australia. It had been gutted and tanned in blue so the hide was beautiful. Instead of a stomch, there qwas thi large pouch..the rest looking like a real frog..that it was at one time.
IT MAY HAVE CROAKED …ONCE!
In the land of Aborigines, many continents away
The swamps include the crocodile and the food on which they prey
And thousands of the Blue Swamp Frogs-like you are holding now
Were for the snakes and crocodiles… the
most delicious chow!
Many years ago, Australian farmers sent up a call for arms
Thinking that the blue swamp frog could help around the farm
For bugs and creepy crawly things has overtaken them
And maybe a few bull frogs could help
these pests to thin
But nature played a dirty trick, for while the frogs just loved those flies
The blue swamp frogs did over eat and well, ……just multiplied!
By the thousands they took over, every barnyard, farm and host
And soon the farmers had no choice, but
to slay them by the gross
But what to do with rotting frogs, the stench filled all outside
"Let’s start by gutting all their parts and tan their little hides"
"Oh great"! said all the populace and then "what are we to do,
With a leather frog and great big hole
where once his gut did grew"?
Someone said, "it’s perfect!... for things you all must own
It’s just the perfect size to hold -your personal Cell Phone"
And another added proudly, "Yes and with a cavity this big
You can carry all your popcorn to the
next movie show or gig"
Someone then suggested, "Who needs a purse or such"
Why it ties around your waist and carries very much"!
Another chided that it usefulness, was much beyond a hope
"For while you are in the shower, it can
hold your bathroom soap
Then someone said "Delightful!! How could an overnight go wrong
It’s big enough to hold pajamas, brush and comb and mini thong"
So here you are dear one, ..another perfect accessory
Just hang it around your neck and many
uses you will see
But be careful when you handle and DON"T blow into it’s gut
Cause this has a tendency to wake the bull frog up
Because what is most unusual about the nature of this species
Is that when you blow into it’s belly….. it gets PREGNANT, very easy!
