LIFE OF TOAD


And so the story goes
The toad has lost all hope
because he couldn't cope
or that he lost his hop
Decides to end his life
left tads and loving wife
by letting passing car
to flatten him to tar.
His will, already broke
He breathed his final croak!

Such is a life of a toad
Run over on the road
To hop or not to hop
Though fate has played out toad
and faded all his hope!

In life, like faith, have hope
just hold on tight to rope
and find more ways to cope
and don't be like the toad
who let fate crash his hope.
