Curious Abner and the Toad
Curious Abner licked a toad; at least he thought it so.
For a moment or so it looked like a toad, from head to warty toe.
“However” said Ab, “I’m not so sure”, for time seemed awfully slow….
“whatever it was that I did lick, I’m not sure that I know.”
He pondered a moment and then, “Aha, perhaps it was a stool,
Upon which sat a warty toad who made me such a fool.
“Twas the shape” said he “of which I’m not, so sure I’ll ever know…
But lick I did and shape be damned, I think it’s time to go.”
And Abner left the room.
