A bullfrog in a storm drain



In channels clogged with compose
under the steel-fit manhole,
a bullfrog groans bass tone moans.

Caught in last night's downpour
while out on the garden lawn,
he went with where the water flows

-- that's all he knows from days of
being a tadpole before he grew legs
and things
             
                       got complicated --

So he went with the flow,

and all the leaves
that fell in heaps
went with him....

In channels clogged with compose
under the steel-fit manhole,
a stranded bullfrog longs
for another great rain storm.
