Magellan Frog Plots His Departure


Magellan Frog is kingdom explorer,
frowned upon by Frog King
for being rash and irresponsible.

He spends his days admiring
a verdant patch of centipede grass
that grows beneath the wisteria vine.

Magellan Frog has formulated his plan:
1) escape to far off grassy land
2) command worldwide frog respect
3) rescue Princess Frog from wicked son
of neighboring frog king’s brother
4) spend life eating bees
and fertilizing eggs, and eating bees, and...

The only real problem with Magellan Frog
is his inability to plan or comprehend
the consequences of leaving
his small though adequate pond,

So he ventures away, binocular vision
set upon the gourmet cuisine
that inhabits the land beneath the vine-

He hops...he hesitates...
he lowers his head

Big hop and he lands, three feet away
from home, away from the Frog King
And (he hadn’t thought of this)
away from Water!

Magellan Frog frantically hops
back to the little pond where he plans
his next foray into the world-

Away from this particular pond
and even further away
from the disapproving eyes of Frog King
