Tales of a Toad

Posted on Feb 18, 2013


Old Toad
he tells a story
About many a thing
a regular Jackanory
Tales of swashbuckling
and derring-do
Is there anything
that Toad hasn’t seen or can’t do?

He’ll tell you one thing
others another
Never being honest
to friend or brother
This his way
for many a year
Old Toad
has honesty to fear

He trips up
in all his tales
Getting lost
in those fables
Being honest
is hard for he
But if he tried
then from lies he’d be free
