A large and hungry toad
Waits along the way
Of dogs he’s et his fill
A kid would make his day.
He’s always waiting here
His arse rests in the mud.

This poor, forgotten toad
His friends have turned away
He has left a pool of tears
Sobbing, crying all the day
“Why leave waiting here
My arse resting on mud?”

All his life he’s been alone
And many times he’s cried
Anyway you'll never know
How hard his friends have died.

This poor forgotten toad,
His arse rests in the mud.
He eats up cats and dogs
Sometimes he eats living crud.
Don't leave him waiting there,
Let him in your door.

But still this misbegotten beast
Lives as best he can.
We left him waiting there
A long, long time ago.

A large and hungry toad
Waits along the way
Of dogs he’s et his fill
A kid would make his day.
He’s always waiting here
His arse rests in the mud.

Yes, I WILL make fun of anything and anyone!

Nice poem especially as I'm quite fond of toads. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beelzebu… it also made me think of this animal.

It is, of course, a parody of "A Long and Winding Road" that was inspired by a "wandering monster" in a role-playing game.

Thanks! Would you believe that this was inspired by a "wandering monster" in a game of Dungeons and Dragons? There was this giant toad hiding in an alley you see....
