A few words from Grumpy Toad–The Godfather.


toadsWith grumpy expression
Lumpy, mottled complexion
Eyes, narrow slits
Sternly, stood guard
Waited to strike
Swiftly, silently
Any, and all
Intruders, that
Dared stray, into
His personal space
Were fair game

But, that was not
How, he appeared
To me, Instead, he
Was, an aficionado
Of fine wines, Cohiba
Cigars, epicurean
Delights, he’d been
To faraway places
Rubbed shoulders, with
The rich and famous

Perhaps, given to
Occasional bursts
Of bellicosity, discretely
Shunned, extreme
Grandiosity, a proud
Patriarch, known
Throughout, the entire
Amphibian sphere, as
Godfather, of the
Family Bufonadae
