Frosk, til almen forlystelse

Deerstalker er ikke aldeles frisk og trøster seg med fjollete lyrikk. Og hva er vel da bedre enn Hilaire Belloc?

The Frog
Be kind and tender to the Frog,
And do not call him names,
As "Slimy skin," or "Polly-wog,"
Or likewise "Ugly James,"
Or "Gap-a-grin," or "Toad-gone-wrong,
"Or "Bill Bandy-knees":
The Frog is justly sensitive
To epithets like these.

No animal will more repay
A treatment kind and fair;
At least so lonely people say
Who keep a frog (and, by the way,
They are extremely rare).
