Herbie The Frog

Herbie the frog with the lopsided hop
Would travel in circles till he tired and stopped
Then jump into the pond with a giant kerplop
As the bullfrogs laughed and croaked till they dropped.

It mattered not where Herbie was bound,
Even when swimming he went round and round.
Amongst all the pollywogs he was renouned
For going and going and not gaining ground.

Poor Herbie had no trouble just staying busy,
But circling and circling made him so dizzy.
He lived in a pond he couldn't cross,
But one things for sure, he never got lost.

    I was looking at my first remarks to you when you must have posted this about a year ago. I think I liked your poem even better seeing it the second time around. I just found it so authentically humorous on reading it this time. Very well written and family oriented. BIG congrats for your number one win!!
