A toad On a road Squashed The ford squished the toad Gods wheels made the devil implode Dreams seeping into the sun Travelers No idea the death they created The toad Now was rotting on the road Death saved humanity The toad was a loathsome load Of vile spittle Of spiteful dribble Tribble and vitriol The toad was a seeker He found his destiny As road kill Gods will

I liked it so well the first, I just had to come back and read it again...thinking about offering it to my priest for a homily subject. What do you think?

Thanks Andrea, this was about no one in particular, although it could be applied to a few trolls here.
