The Fable of The Songbird & The Frog



author's note:

Dedicated to all potential princes and princesses.


THE FABLE OF THE SONGBIRD & THE FROG

The songbird said:

you're no match for me

so the bullfrog asked:

by who's measure?--

people have also opened
their windows to my song:

my audience recognizes
the less obvious beauty--

so aren't they more refined?--

anyone can enjoy a sweet treat

but one needs a wise heart
to find the aria hidden within
my harsh slimy croaking.
