PLEASE DON'T TEASE

By Josie Whitehead

Please Don't Tease

A cheeky bluebottle teased a frog.

     It really was quite sad.

He buzzed around the poor frog’s head

     And tried to drive him mad.

 

Another bluebottle laughed at him:

     'He isn’t real,' he said.

'He’s just an ornamental frog.

     Try that other one instead.'

 

The other frog sat oh so still.

     You’d think that he was dead.

The stupid bluebottle looked at him:

     'Yes, I’ll tease him instead.'

 

He tootled off across the pond:

     'Well, I’m sure he can’t be real,' –

But as he buzzed a tongue shot out

     And he became a froggy meal.
