These Toads

Hallmarks of any good industry, these toads. You can set your watch by these toads, whether underwater or not. How much credit do we give these creatures, and why haven’t we cared to give them more credit than we already have? I imagine it comes from a lack of perspective, an unwillingness to see the need for these little hopping beasts. It goes from bad to worse when the toads are made to compete with one another. Do not pit toads against each other, I learned that the hard way. Just let them be themselves without weapons or rage, and you’ll come to appreciate why we have these toads here in the first place.


Author: Aidan Badinger I am a poet. I write poems. Titles and subjects and subsequent readership are all part of one fragmented figment of our universe, and it's nice that we take it so seriously. Hopefully the craft remains and grows stronger for our children.
