Life of a Halloween Frog

Halloween night

dressed in a costume

stole some candy

hitting my friend with a broom

With intense emotions

he cast a spell

wishing me to be a frog

in the soil to dwell

I gave a bloodcurdling scream

as the spell came to fruition

everything was gone

except my intuition

Dirty and covered in mud

eating a fly

jumping around

feeling quite spry

Along comes a dog

taking me in his mouth

struggling to be free

afraid this going south

Let go

thrown under a fence

trying to breathe

the air is dense

Finding my friend

mother said to change me back

croaking an apology

using great tact

At home

filled with relief

gave all candy to my friend

small price to stand on two feet
