Someday, for Open Link Night


Shout in a barrel
to awaken the frog
who lives inside,
drinking your root beer
like it’s his job.

Someday, you’ll roll
that barrel down
a hill—bumps, jolts,
hillocks dislodging
that blasted frog,

the foam on his
silly frog lips;
his eyes will be
the size of pennies,
and you will know

you’ve startled him,
made him think
the barrel times are
over, no more
stolen root beer days.

  1. Marilyn, I caught the innuendo here. Cute with a sinister touch. Thanks for visiting me yesterday, I am now just getting round to read others. It’s a pleasure to meet you.
