Chicken Big, 42

Frightening Doggerel

Froggy Went A-Courtin’: ranophobia

The Princess was afraid of frogs:
They lived in mucky ponds and bogs.

So she was really quite surprised
When she one weekend realized

That one male frog was kind of cute—
And had appealing ways, to boot.

So then she kissed him on the lips—
Her fears then went into eclipse.

In fact, she claimed he was a prince,
Though she has never seen him since.

He’d dived right back into the bog,
This discombobulated frog.

He found a distant lily pad,
And there he croaked, “Have I been bad?

What made that woman try to bite?
That kind of thing just isn’t right!”

He fell asleep. His dream was big—
An amorous (but bossy) pig.
