“Sweet are the uses of adversity, which, which like the toad,
ugly & venomous, wears yet a precious jewel in his head.”
Serious actors prefer being called a toad, rather than
a celebrity--which paints them as a popular success,
despite their obvious warts.
If you are a princess, or even just a wannabe,
kiss a ton of toads, for it is plausible
that your sweet lips could whelp a prince.
When I was younger, I drove
much too fast, reckless & furious, prompting
my passengers to label my drivingas Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride.
