The Frog

There was a frog sticking out
of the mouth of a snake
and I'm just a kid
poking them with a stick
too scared to pick a side

Does it matter that you died
an animal without any ambition
would it matter if you died
If a man pretends you lived?

In the palm of your hand
he tries to walk like a man
bulging watery fear eyes
at least your dad isn't here

snake lays an egg in my mouth

convulsing throat
tight around his waist
shots of dark blue flooding his veins
try to shake off that shiver of dread
but that's not what he would have said
cook in the sun, sleep on a log
the bog is where he belongs
i'm just passing by on a nature hike
to clear my mind

and waste some time

his family retires to the pond
after the ceremony
would they understand?
your guess is as good as mine

too scared to make a move
