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.

That is hopeful. I think I like that toad.
Wasn’t he a friendly helper?
