All That Glitters

You should be pissed
‘cause in the bog
the frog you kissed
was just a frog
Its royal hue
seemed right to you
Instead you’re dead

Yes, I know, poisonous frogs are found in Central and South American forests, not in bogs.

Waiting For It

The buzzards sit
along the fence
doing their bit
to make me tense
What do they know
of where I go
that they won’t say
