       The original title was "The Hungry Game"...it's all I could think of after finishing this piece. That being said, I figured something a little more direct for a title was more appropriate...and thus you have "The Maiden and the Frog King".

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.

    dotsThe Maiden and the Frog Kingdots

    Once upon a wicked wonder
    this tale I'm told to tell
    Of frogs that talk with candor
    from deep within a well

    Fair maiden, fresh and ripe
    has dropped her silken sash
    A wayward wind did swipe
    to yonder well to splash

    "To what do I owe this velvet gift?"
    the web'ed critter mused
    "Should I be readied for a tift?"
    ne'er wishing to be abused

    And while he ranted on
    young lassie did approach
    She heard the splashing spawn
    but dared not to encroach

    "Just what am I to do?!"
    he seemed much more incense
    "My kingdom for a clue!"
    his voice grew quite intense

    "A kingdom you must prove to me!"
    she spoke aloud and clear
    He slyly said so candidly
    "Who is it that I hear?"

    He paused for her replies
    this wolf in green-wet skin
    The hunger in his eyes
    for peasant flesh within

    "Please show your golden crown,
    and then I'll truly know."
    "My goodness just peer down,
    for this I tell you so."

    No ordinary wench
    this bonny lass was not
    A waft of vermin stench
    this huntress had just caught

    "Why not chance a look,
    and see your heart's desire?"
    "Let's do this by the book,
    on three we'll both admire?"

    He pondered: "Yes, I do concur."
    his mouth agape for food
    "I'm so glad we could confer."
    her dagger drawn and cued

    Upon her final count
    he leapt into the air
    From his shallow mount
    he pounced to his despair

    Sweet damsel held her ground
    and glanced down at his folly
    With bladed point unbound
    she lanced the creepy crawly

    This now brings us to the end
    of the fount-king and his glory
    There is no moral to pretend
    just some frog-leg cacciatore

      This entertains me in the same way the wind in the willows did as a child. Yet it remains original in text and character.

    I never ate frog legs though it was a family favorite. I simply refused because I liked frogs so much. I enjoyed the ending because it was familiar to me BC of the history I have in relation to frog legs.

    Very fun read, thank you for sharing.
