Bob the Pollywog

Bob the pollywog had it coming

there was gun smoke in his eyes

his enemies were upon him

with murder in their thighs

but Bob was green and mean

fresh mucous swept his brow

with amphibious determination

he slyly starred them down

they say Bob was a hero

as the gunfire began to fall

but he was just a tadpole

didn't have any damn arms at all
