fear the lone bullfrog
the tongue like
a whip – snap!

ambush hunter
snags his lunch
bellows, “jug-a-rum”

    I love listening to the “jug-a -rum” sound at dusk! And you got in the other ll word in bellow!
    Will have to look in on Mary Lee to see the connection. Thanks again!

    A bullfrog’s docile countenance
    Camouflages its ravenous fury
    When their spaced out peepers
    Mark out buffets of varmints
    Scampering in the wild.

    The prophet Jeremiah was an apt name for a bullfrog. They both had tongues like a whip.

    Funny thing, my poem about surprise for tomorrow is shaping up to be a dragonfly (larva) poem!
