Old Toad

I stepped outside onto my porch

and there I found a toad.

“Old Toad,” I said, “this is not for you.

Just hop on down the road.”

He popped big eyes and to my surprise

said “I came to let you know

that things are not as bad as they seem.

I’ve a Message before I go.

Just hold on and do your part.

Keep your Courage.  Don’t Lose Heart.

Wherever you are, do the Best You Can.

There still is a shining future for Man.”

He said “I came to spread the word…

a simple message that needs to be heard.”

And then he croaked and shifted his load

and then he hopped on down the road.
