Big Mouth Frog

I had fun writing my Pleiades poems in November, so I thought I’d try my hand at playing with Limericks. This style of poetry consists of a single stanza of five lines. The first, second, and fifth lines are supposed to rhyme. Also, the third and fourth lines should rhyme with each other. These short poems should have an AABBA structure. The limerick is a folk style of poetry. It can be humorous and, at times, bawdy. I’m not certain if I can achieve witty or bawdy, but hopefully, I believe I can stick with the rhyme pattern. I’ve heard the health of frogs is the best way to determine the condition of an ecosystem. Therefore, I wrote the Big Mouth Frog to remind us to take care of our environment.

Big Mouth Frog

Once there was a big mouth frog

Who made his home deep in a bog.

He croaked all night long

In a sexy mating song

Until his voice was silenced by the smog.

The human race has so many problems facing it right now. I hope the Limerick Big Mouth Frog reminds everyone not to put global warming on the back burner. Covid-19 seems to have taken center stage right now.

I am the author of Saving the Hen House. I didn't know when I started it would turn into a series. I love to ride motorcycles, the blues, my family, and going on adventures. This old hen rocks.
