Into the maw of deep darkness I fell
bulging my eyes like a frog,
thinking perhaps I was headed for hell,
along with my brood polliwogs.
Yelping and yelling, I slid as I went,
dragging my innards behind,
swaggering swallowing, vast firmaments,
flapping my frog legs in time.
Into that hole I went groping with hope,
into the hole, winking wild!
Hey, everyone! I’m beginning to choke!
So guess I’ll be dead in a while.
Into the roiling, black darkness I plunged,
into the darkness sublime!
Soaked me right up like a thirsty, dry sponge.
Too bad that I went in my prime.
