There was a green frog that lived in a log,
And only came out when there was a fog,
When no-one could see him, and guess what he did?
He used to jump up on the garbage bin lid!
Then, just before school when the children came out
To empty the garbage, you’d hear them all shout!
They’d reach for the handle, but what did they grab?
A fat slimy frog! Yes, a hand full of flab!
YUCK! It was awful! PEWK! It was sick!
The children ran crying and looking for sticks,
But when they came back there was no green frog —
He was home laughing — safe in his log!
