The Tale of the Toads – The Beginning

March 31, 2011

The Beginning

When earth was formed and saith He,
“Let toads be thus and thus,”
a ball of dust with water weaved,
collected into mud.

The slimy marble, glistening green
now faintly carved with life,
Unfurled its arms, its legs, its dreams
and deeply breathed a sigh.

The toad shook off eternal sleep,
and bowed his ugly head.
“You shall be called the First of Chiefs”
was what his Maker said.

The First then filled his sac with air,
and bellowed out a song,
a blissful tune, without a care,
he sung it all day long.

Then joined along did other toads
who came forth after him.
In harmony, they sung and chose
the joy of life in them.
