Toad Tales

Toad Tales

“Sweet are the uses of adversity, which, which like the toad,
ugly & venomous, wears yet a precious jewel in his head.”
--William Shakespeare.

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 driving
as Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride.

That is some wild ride Mr. Glenn! I would rather not kiss a ton of toads though, smiles~
